I should have also added that all this stuff can probably already be accomplished by implementing the schema markup tags if I'm understanding this thing properly?
So, why force yet another layer of work on top of us? And of course this will be unique to google. From what I'm seeing most other search engines are doing a fairly good job of properly finding and presenting info back to us that match our queries.
For people with large sites this would probably be a lot of work and time invested for something that will only be of use to google. Someday the search engine landscape will be level but until then I have stopped doing what Simon says.
One more point. Is it just me or is there a trend developing where google is trying to dumb things down so that anyone in a company can optimize their pages bypassing their I.T. people? Where will that lead?
Once again, no thanks google. I'll stick to hand coding my sites in ways that appeal to all engines and maybe someday in the future when you roll your algorithm that you've been working on for a decade off your development server and put it into production it might be smart enough to figure it all out.
