- Embrace AI integration. AI is reshaping search engines and user interaction, necessitating adaptive SEO and marketing strategies.
- Optimize for intent. Shift focus from keywords to user intent and conversational queries for effective SEO in AI-driven search.
- Leverage personalization. AI's predictive capabilities enable highly personalized marketing, enhancing user engagement and targeting.


The combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and search engines marks a pivotal shift in online search dynamics, blending generative AI with traditional search functionalities. This integration significantly influences search engine optimization (SEO), marketing and advertising strategies by altering the search engine results page (SERP) layout, and introducing AI-generated summaries and visual aids to enrich user queries. As brands navigate through this transition, understanding the search engines’ operational mechanisms and its implications on user search behavior, click-through rates, and overall digital marketing effectiveness becomes crucial.


Josh Rosen, President at Reticle AI, told CMSWire that AI-enhanced search engines are serving people results that are much more personalized, but when it comes to advertising, that technology is not being used to its full potential. "We’re still seeing a lot of ads that have nothing to do with the content we’re viewing,” said Rosen. “There’s a real opportunity for us to bridge this gap by using AI to scan for the emotional context of your search results.” Rosen suggested that by analyzing emotional content, it can then create the same level of personalization with the ads it displays by matching emotional intent. “Having the right ads in the right context is a win-win for both the user and the advertiser.”
