Google’s new “seo” search feature has become a major hit among its customers, and now the search giant says it’s working on the next big thing.
Speaking at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco, cofounder and CEO Larry Page told reporters at the conference that “seoSearch” will be an essential part of the Google search experience, but it won’t be Google’s only search-related feature.
Instead, Page said, the “seOSearch” search engine is the next major Google search feature to launch.
The company announced its first “seosearch” feature in the spring of 2015, allowing users to search Google by name or by keyword.
It was initially intended to replace the search results page on Google Maps and other Google-owned services, but Google quickly removed the feature after criticism that it was designed to be intrusive.
Google’s new seo service will use data from Google’s “personal search engine” as a basis for ranking the results for users, Page told a packed room of Google executives on stage.
Users will be able to select a category or a search term and “seostorms” Google will then rank those results.
The service is available on Google search and is free to users, but will cost $99 per year.
In its beta phase, the service will only show results that were ranked by “seolists” who use Google’s own algorithms.
“Our goal is to build a search engine that is both simple and intuitive,” Page said.
“Seo is the engine of the future, not the engine that dominates.”
Google is already working on other search features, including “seobind,” a new search engine with an emphasis on personalization, and the upcoming “search with words” service that is expected to make search easier for users who can’t read a word.
