I’m not sure how many of you have seen this new search engine that is in beta testing right now – but it looks freakin’ amazing.
The importance of a good design is going to be an essential part of marketing your site in the future. Now that SearchMe is coming out, I see this as making a huge impact on the way people literally *view* your web site and decide whether or not to visit.
Originally when I started designing sites, I was heavy on the flash and graphics, but started drifting away from that when I started studying Search Engine Optimization. I relied more on search engine rankings and the description of the site that appeared on Google.
With SearchMe, it’s going to be a delicate balancing act of good SEO and amazing design.
Time are a changing…
