This one almost killed me.
Who is at risk?
Any business which provides answers to questions including, but not limited to:
- Data, product and service aggregators
- Flight, hotel, car rental search and booking sites
- Price comparison, weather reports, sports results
- Event calendars and various other data-driven websites
- Domain information, IP address lookups, time/date and currency conversion.
Who is safe?
Original producers or content, products, tools and services will continue to enjoy the benefits of organic search traffic. One thing to watch out for is that your data is not detached from your brand and used to present to your audience directly through search results. Some already fear this might be taking place through rich snippets and the knowledge graph.
At this stage Google is incapable of providing well-organised, curated content or meaningful advice or opinion. In the next ten years or so we will still see human-generated content as dominant producer of this type of information and advice. The decade after that, however, will challenge this and we will see artificial intelligence assume a more meaningful role in content curation, opinion and even advice.

Wait, doesn't Ray Kurzweil work for Google now?
OH MY GOD.
//light goes on
It's been a long time since a test was run to see if Google+ activity could impact search. http://www.fromquarkstoquasars.com/introducing-the-tardigrade/ <----- Would love your help with this URL
It's a random page I found while searching after hearing about the Tardigrade on Cosmos. Currently, the page ranks #26 in Google US non-personalized results.
1) Please don't link to this page from anywhere except Google+
2) Please do click the link from Google+ and take a gander.
3) Please do share the link itself in your own Google+ account, and +1 others' shares of the link. Feel free to use photos, too :-)
4) Please don't share the post link directly on other social networks
Thanks so much!
p.s. I'm aware G folks might see this and take manual action, but I'm hoping that won't be the case.
