Google Instant Hasn't Really Changes Traffic Referrals

A couple weeks ago, we asked if Google Instant has impacted your organic search traffic to your web site. As you know, Google Instant has changed how people search. But does that make a difference on how your pages are ranked, how people search and ultimately how people click on your Google listing to view your web site.

We have 230 or so responses to our poll. Most said their traffic has remained the same, the others are split between the traffic going up and going down.

Here are the results:

  • 52% said Google Traffic Is About Same Since Instant
  • 24% said Google Traffic Is Up Since Instant
  • 23% said Google Traffic Is Down Since Instant

Interesting results, don't you think?

Forum discussion continued at Google Webmaster Help.

I don't think that the new search brings much benefit... not for users and not for SEO... time will tell... my opinion at this time: traffic is about the same.
