Experts say that search sites, which are now hugely popular, are gradually pushing back other resources. Even the ubiquitous online encyclopaedia can no longer compete with search engines, as they offer users ready information for fewer clicks. According to Vladimir Ofitserov, the leading specialist of the Google search quality team, the company decided to post more information on SERPs (search engine research pages). This is due to the fact that users are increasingly using large-format screens and monitors, so, therefore, it’s now possible to use the right part of the screen to accommodate additional useful information. Google is the largest search engine in the world, handling billions of queries per day.
