Is the the end of SEO?
I wonder how SE do that - How do they learn our search behavior and if it says something.
All kinds of tracking - browsers, toolbars, cookies, Google accounts, etc, etc.
I know that search history is stored somewhere but for a single PC sometimes could be more than one user.
Yes, it can be. It matters more to the individual than to the large aggregate data that Google looks at
Is it legal?
Is it social?
More and more
What are the consequences?
We're learning that right now.
Each of these "quick questions" has already generated hundreds - maybe thousands - of threads on WebmasterWorld. The Site Search [webmasterworld.com] will uncover a lot of discussion and I'm not sure there's a lot new to say right now.
The important news here is that Google will soon be expanding personalization in new ways. Matt indicated that the SSL keyword referrer issue will easier to understand once we see what is waiting in the wings.
