@wwconnect, I would have to say out of all the things I've read here in the past couple weeks, yours makes the most sense. The move for Google to an AI search rather than "traditional". The fact that it's difficult to get exact results says to me that they are taking your search phrase and filling in the blanks, as to say, asking themselves that you want this and may we suggest this. Unfortunately the web and webmasters have prepared their information in such a way as to leave no guess work (titles, keywords, anchor links, etc) what their page or article was about. I do think this AI aspect makes sense. It makes sense to me because there is no rhyme or reason to a lot of results I see. Other than if I asked a friend where I could get laptop reviews, they would say CNET, Engadget, etc. They wouldn't know about joe blows expertise and great review blog. I dunno, AI for Google search is something that rings a bell with me. Traditionally in video games AI equates to a real dummy. In a lot of ways, and in a lot of examples that I'm reading about, Google is acting like a dummy. That might indicate AI doing the work and not relying on the page elements and SEO that we all used to tell Google what our content or website is all about. And if you consider that in it's purest form SEO is just a means to best communicate to a search engine EXACTLY what our site and content is about.
