The Future of the Web

Many Internet experts would tell you that we are currently in the age of Web 2.0, the time when Internet applications have been centered around interoperability and information sharing.

It is during this time when we saw the boom of social networking sites, wikis, blogs, video-sharing sites, and hosted services. In this time, users have been accustomed to share and edit information online, whenever we need it.

So we've been in Web 2.0 for this long, finding out what we need by ourselves using Google. Experts have been telling us about the emergence of another version of the Web, though, and it will come probably in the near future. This time, fellow users are not our only friend in information sharing. In the so-called Web 3.0, even our browsers will learn how to understand and analyze whatever it is you want to know. This is called the Semantic Web.

Today, when you want to search a number of bits of information online, you will have to go through half a dozen websites before getting what you want to know. In the semantic Web, however, all you have to do is to put it one sentence containing your questions and let the Web do the analyzing. In Web 3.0, information is arranged in a logical manner faraway from whatever the current Google's ordering of information.

Furthermore, many experts agree that the Web 3.0 will act like some personal assistant. As you use the Internet, the web will start to understand what you are interested in and may actually suggest some ideas as you go through your browsing experience. This way, you can only ask a question such as, "What movie can I watch?" and then the Web will check out its directories and come out with suggestions.

Will this affect one's SEO strategy in the future? Definitely. If you want to stay on top of the heat, you will have to make sure you remain relevant. How? That we don't know yet, for sure.
