Adapt as an SEO, or get washed away

With the latest Google revamp, SEO’s are going to have to find ways to keep their clients on the first page. The days of competing via only contextual listings are gone. Now that video, news, and maps are thrown in the mix, space is at a premium! Only time will tell how cluttered the pages will get, however, it is a bit early to judge how this will pan out. If Google is smart though they will keep it simple and holistic. IMHO they could easily get carried away and need to keep one simple thing in mind, what has helped them get to where they are today, simplicity and consistency.
