Coming to a Google search near you: the Carousel. This is exciting stuff from an SEO perspective. We're willing to bet every SEO expert in the industry will be trying to figure out ways to get their clients' web content into that black bar at the top of the search engine results pages (SERPs).
The exciting bit about this new development to Google's search is that it puts your site potentially right at the top of the search results and in a highlighted dark background. This very visual position, especially being so location focused, would be a prime spot. We look forward to experimenting with content and working out how Google's engines choose the content that finds its way to this knowledge graph carousel.
