In this episode, Gartner researchers Jessica Dervyn and Wilson Zhao join to discuss the impact of generative AI on search marketing. The discussion includes how the changes in the search landscape are driving a decrease in brand visibility on Google SERP, challenging brand website traffic from organic search. Consumer search behavior is constantly changing, and Google SGE (Search Generative Experience) further transform how consumers search and receive information. Digital marketing leaders must experiment with Google SGE, monitor top-performing content, and strategically refine onsite content for optimal engagement and differentiation in this evolving GenAI area.
