Surely it hasn't taken Google all these years to realize this.
No I don't think it has. The fact that they have always had those "related keywords" supplemental suggestions there implies them knowing how important it was. Maybe they were hoping this new core can better process integrated wholes now. But so far from what I'm seeing it's not.
I've been trying out google for a few days because of this hype but I'm not seeing anything much different -- same set of lousy results that can't recognize my intention of informational search vs commercial query. Garbage. I got creative and with each new search results I just immediately skipped ahead to page 7 and started browsing from there onward. Pages there were more relevant.
For me google is still very much a waste of time but I have to jump through their hoops for the sake of my clients. If I were only doing this for myself google would have been long gone from my vocabulary. I have to grudgingly keep myself in the loop of happenings.
