What is SGE? (Generative AI in Search)

Google SGE which stands for Search Generative Experience represents the new method and a huge change in evolution in terms of how information is queried and consumed online. 


At its core Google SGE and its advanced generative artificial intelligence (AI) is being seamlessly integrated into Google’s search engine framework and landscape. This process is a huge change for the Google Search landscape with the overall user experience changing to become more intuitive towards giving users results to their search queries.


This really is a monumental leap forward in the evolution of the internet and the search landscape.

How will Google SGE change the Google search landscape?

With the introduction of Google SGE immersed in the Google Search landscape, users’ responses won’t only be met with the traditional list of search results, whereby we see titles, descriptions and links organically. Results will be spearheaded by Google SGE delivering enriched answers directly within Google search results, right at the top of the page. Google’s introduction of AI will focus on information being synthesised from various sources, offering a well crafted perspective to users queries right within the search result page itself.


The new methodology which Google will be introducing offers a truly innovative approach giving users answers directly within the Google platform itself. Not only will it be giving them content to their queries but also delivering exploration opportunities such as further recommended content such as:


  • Related topics
  • Comparisons
  • Predictive insight


To paint a good picture for you, imagine, you searched for “electric cars vs. hydrogen fuel cell cars: Which is more sustainable?”


Google SGE directly within the Google search results may yield comprehensive guidance on the query, using automotive sites, automotive scientific sites, forums, academic research and more. Whilst also giving us additional relatable information and content we may be interested off the back of the search that was originally performed.


For businesses and content creators across the internet, Google SGE, is a huge shift, however a shift towards:


  • Prioritising quality
  • Rewarding authoritative content
  • Delivering a deeper understanding of user intent


This change by Google underscores the importance of adopting SEO strategies that align with the introduction of AI and the introduction of it into the search engine landscape. This change means focusing on content creation and ensuring it’s fit for purpose is even more important. Ensuring it addresses a user’s needs and questions in a meaningful way is going to be more paramount than ever.




What’s changing visually within the Google landscape with the introduction of SGE?


The introduction of Google’s Search Generative Experience (SGE) is not only focusing on a technical upgrade, we should also be expecting a visual and interactive upgrade too. The look of Google search results as we know it will be changing so not only does an SEO consultancy like Egnetix Digital need to adjust, so will the entire user base of the Google search platform.


With the introduction of a new visual, functional look and feel, here are a few snippets of what we should be expecting:


AI information positioned at the top of the page

Google SGE results will be positioned in a prime luxury real estate on the Google search platform, which is the right at the top of the page. The AI crafted content will sit in a prime position being populated above the fold for users to grab all the information they need right away.


A Richer, More Interactive Interface

One of the most noticeable changes will be the transition to a richer, more interactive interface within search results. Google SGE aims to present information in a variety of formats—be it text, images, videos, or interactive elements—directly on the search page. This means users will have access to a broader spectrum of information without needing to click through to a website.


Conversational Responses and Summaries

Google SGE is designed to understand the intent behind queries with unprecedented accuracy, allowing it to generate conversational responses that feel tailored to each user. Expect to see concise summaries and direct answers that provide a comprehensive overview of your query, all within the initial search results page.


Enhanced Data Visualisation

For queries that involve data, statistics, or complex information, Google SGE will offer enhanced data visualisations. Graphs, charts, and infographics will become more prominent, enabling users to grasp intricate data at a glance. This visual representation of information promises to make the interpretation of data more accessible to everyone.


Dynamic Content Integration

With SGE, Google’s search results will dynamically integrate content from a range of sources, offering a curated experience that goes beyond static links. Live feeds, real-time updates, and interactive content modules will provide users with up-to-the-minute information directly within search results.


Personalised Visual Cues

SGE’s AI-driven approach also means that search results will become more personalised, not just in content but in visual presentation. Based on user preferences and search history, the visual layout of information may adjust to better suit individual needs and preferences, enhancing user experience and engagement.


Contextual Information Panels

For complex queries, Google SGE will introduce contextual information panels that aim to provide depth and background. These panels will offer users insights into related topics, historical context, or connected ideas, visually enriching the search experience by weaving a more comprehensive narrative around each query.


The visual evolution of Google Search with the introduction of SGE, heralds a new age of information discovery. By transforming the way information is presented and interacted with, Google is not just changing the look of search results but is fundamentally enhancing the utility and experience of search itself. For businesses and SEO professionals, adapting to this new visual landscape will be crucial in optimising content for visibility and engagement in the era of generative AI.
