Googles Universal search
Google has made some major changes to the way they display to the way search results now when you search you may find not just links to websites but images videos news items posts from blogs or even products from Google products.
This started to be rolled out in the us around may 16th and will be progressively applied across all goggle countries e.g. google.co.uk, google.fr etc.
The full implications of these changes are still being felt and we are still investigating what these changes mean and if there are new ways in which websites can be promoted video and audio are prime candidates here.
