By now, you’re probably wondering what will happen to the internet once it starts losing all interest in it.
And while there are no hard numbers on the exact numbers of users who will be left without access to content, there’s some evidence that we may soon be seeing a drop in traffic.
In a recent blog post, The Verge’s Matt King wrote that while the internet’s traffic is still growing, its overall traffic will drop by 50% in the coming years.
And that’s not counting the fact that there are currently a lot of things that are going to be harder for people to access.
King says this trend will be particularly apparent for things like Netflix and other streaming video services, and that the internet will no longer be able to keep up with the needs of the people who consume those services.
The Verge points out that the decline in internet traffic will come even more quickly for things such as Facebook, which is likely to see traffic drop even more rapidly, while YouTube is likely going to experience a drop as well.
It’s not just the internet that will be affected by this; King writes that a drop of 50% will also affect Google search, which will probably see traffic plummet by as much as 80%.
King argues that the shift is likely coming for both content and services, but the main difference between the two is that the former is more likely to be affected in the short-term, while the latter can be impacted over time.
If you’re a user who is worried about the internet dropping off, it’s worth looking into how Google might be able and will respond to the shift.
King’s analysis of Google’s network traffic data is fascinating, and it does show a significant decline in traffic from Netflix, but not for other services.
For instance, his data shows that Google’s traffic has dropped from 3.1 billion requests a month in March 2018 to 1.9 billion requests per month in April 2018.
Google doesn’t say exactly how many requests it’s dropping from the month before, but King notes that the company is seeing a “significant drop in searches for things that were previously used for search.”
This is important because search engines such as Google are used to serving up content that is highly relevant to users and they are likely to focus their efforts on getting those content more people to use, rather than just the things they’re already interested in.
Google has even made efforts to reduce the amount of traffic it sees to other websites, so it’s likely that its search engine is able to cope with a drop like this.
But King also points out another potential benefit of the change.
While traffic is falling, Google is also getting a bigger piece of the pie.
“Google has had to increase its share of the search market, as users switch to using other search engines,” he writes.
“In addition to increased search traffic, Google has also been able to boost its share on search results pages.”
While it may not be as drastic a drop, the shift to other search engine traffic may also be enough to keep the internet afloat.
Google will have to get creative to find new ways to use the data, but if it’s not careful, it could also be a source of frustration for users.
King also warns that the decrease in traffic is likely happening “over time,” and that Google will not be able simply to turn it off and wait for things to return to normal.
It could take some time for the internet to recover, but there are some things that the tech giant can do to help.
King points out some of these things that it can do.
“If Google doesn�t plan to continue to improve its own search results, it can take the traffic from other search companies and put it in its own results,” he wrote.
“When the search results page becomes more generic, it may become easier for Google to differentiate its own result pages from other results.”
This can help Google to better target search results that are more relevant to people and make sure that it is more relevant.
It also makes Google more attractive to advertisers.
“As Google gets more popular, it will be easier for advertisers to target ads to Google users,” King writes.
He notes that it may be possible to create a new category of search results called “top search results,” in which Google will display more specific results that users have searched for and found, rather from other companies.
This may mean that Google users will see more ads for its own services.
And finally, Google can improve its search results by making sure that there’s a search bar in the top bar, so that people who want to search for things will have a better chance to find those results.
All of these ideas could help the tech company to stay relevant in the long run.
While Google may be a major player in the search space, it has also built a reputation for doing things that don’t make the most
