Google Wonder Wheel & Search Options Go Live

The Google Wonder Wheel and search options we have seen being tested is now the real deal in Google.com. Google announced it yesterday at the Searchology event, which Danny live blogged. In fact, Matt posted a nice recap of all the announcements at Search Engine Land. So I won't discuss each feature, but instead, I'll show the video Google released to demo it.

There is a lot of discussion around how this might impact the SEO world. Clearly, this gives searchers a way to refine results at a much rapper pace. So the number one ranking, is not always the number one ranking. SEOs had been preparing for this for a long time ever since universal search came to use in 2007. So this isn't that huge, but it is major change in how search is presented, although not as major as universal search.

This will undoubtedly inflate Google's reported search market share even more since Compete, comScore, Hitwise, and Nielsen still use the obsolete methodology of counting number of queries performed.

Are you planning to buy a house as an investment? If you are, this is the best time to do it because house prices are low and there are many foreclosures that may require little repairs and you can make some money reselling or renting them. Is it owning your first home and taking advantage of the $8000 tax credit offered by the US Government in your plans? Maybe you are repeat buyer and if you have lived consecutively for at least 5 of the previous 8 years you may apply for the $6500 tax credit refund. Income requirements for both programs have been expanded to $125,000 for a single person and $225,000 for couples filing jointly. You still have until April 30, 2010 to purchase that home. This is the best time to buy your home or your investment house. Call me today (713) 598-0128 or visit my web wwww.ihelpsell-buyyourhome.com. Si habla español yo puedo ayudarle a comprar su primera casa o comprar otra casa mejor que la que tiene en éstos momentos. Llameme para poder ayudarle (713) 598-0128 o vaya a mi pagina web www.ihelpsell-buyyourhome.com .

Wonder wheel looks cool but Im not sure how it will help search and how I can use it for SEO. The Google keyword tool does a great job of listing keywords related to my queries. So does Google Insights. And I have yet to find any info on the Web on how it can be advantageous.

I'm desperate at this stage.   I've watched every video available on Google Wonder Wheel. Every video says to click "SHOW OPTIONS" tab after you've typed in your keyword.   When I do this there is "NO SHOW OPTIONS" tab on my screen.   I went into to my local computer repair shop (BEST BUY), and they didn't come up with this either.   They typed in "wonder wheel is missing", with no luck.       At this point i have to buy this tool if it;s not available online. please send me a link that will allow me to purchase Google Wonder Wheel" ASAP.  Thanks.
