The new Google Search Generative Experience started to roll out to some users in late May but we are already seeing a decline in usage for these generative AI search features.

A recent poll from Greg Sterling on Twitter, which is still active for another day or so, so please take the poll, shows that about 50% (49%) said they are now using Google SGE less frequently than when it first came out.

Here is the poll:

Only about 9% said they are using it more, 49% said they are using it less, 9% about the same and the rest don't have access to it yet. The results can change, it is a week-long poll.

But this kind of jibes with the reports of ChatGPT's app downloads slowing and overall traffic declining.

Maybe the consumer use of this is waning? But I do still think generative AI in search is going to be huge, but maybe it just won't fully replace search as we know it?
