Search Engine Land did a great article on Friday about how search will change over the next five years. The short of it is that search engines will continue to try to read our minds and go beyond what we search for to deliver what we are looking for. A great example that they give in the article is that if you’re searching for a movie that isn’t out yet the top results will be the trailer since this is what most people would be looking for in general.
Of course as Domainers it is important that you don’t base your livelihood on search engines or you’ll always be dependent on something that you can’t control.

No matter how you slice it, understanding the evolution of search will help you plan your own business whether that business is Domaining, developing, blogging, or launching a hot start-up because it will impact your business in many ways.
