High Position announces their verdict on Google scribe and the affect it might have on the search engine optimisation industry.
Online PR News – 21-September-2010 – – Writer’s block, Google might argue, is a now a thing of the past, with the advent of its new Google Labs offering – Scribe. The new tool has caught the interest of High Position search engine optimisation’s boffins, who have not seen any particular use for it thus far. The tool aims to predict what you are about to type by offering a dropdown selection of connected (at least in Scribe’s eyes) terms.
One of High Position’s senior SEO Specialists, Chris Ainsworth commented: “As an aid to writing, I have to say I wasn’t overwhelmed by it. It took me a considerable amount of time to write a paragraph, and the result was barely comprehensible. It looks like SEO copywriters – and indeed anyone who writes – can feel secure that Scribe poses no real threat.
“The day that a machine can produce copy good enough to inform, educate and entertain real humans is a long way off. Google might have to keep this one confined to the petri dish for a few more decades, or it might go on a Godzilla-like rampage and kill the English language.”
