Google can only rank 8-10 sites on the first page for a particular KW, meaning the rest are left out to dry as we all know, even though there are some good websites on page 2 for certain keywords.
So is it surprising people are looking for other alternatives to search?
Google is the king of search (for now), no question, but as our familiarity with a search tool increases, people who grew up on Google will want something more robust sooner or later. I consider this the evolution of search.
If they don't find a way (other than panda and penguin) to serve up more than just the same old sites for certain keywords on "one page", Google will begin to start looking more like a one dimensional search platform. And even though I hate to admit it because I am not a fan of FB, I think they have the right idea with Social Graph and the future of search, the question is will FB put the necessary resources behind their internal search engine to make it really break away from traditional search & offer a more serious alternative.
