So I have been using Google Instant for the last week and I hate it. I am sure many of you know what Google instant is lol but if not it’s just a feature of their search function that automatically displays results based on what you are typing into the search box before you even finish typing your keyword phrase.
At first, I though it was kinda cool for some basic keyword research and find niches. To some extent it is, but for the most part it’s very annoying. I didn’t like the fact that Google actually forced that option on me changing my default search settings to use the G Instant, so I had to manualy disable it.
Anyway, I find Google instant to be a big distraction when you are searching for something. It pulls all these results totally unrelevant to what I originally intended to search for. I discovered that I was wasting time. I would search for something and then other results would appear so I would go check some things out and before I knew it I have wasted 10-15 minutes on something I wasn’t even interested in in the first place. It sucked!
Another thing is that everytime I restart my browser somehow Google instant is active again and I have to disable it. WTF I guess if I was logged in that would not have happened but I don’t want to be logged a lot of times for many reseaons 😛
So that’s my take on it
