What Does AI Powered Search Mean for Personal Injury Law Firms & Other Professional Businesses?
We get some clues on what it will mean for those searching for personal injury attorneys, estate planners, accountants and other professionals. BING left some clues in their help document within their Webmaster Guidelines:
“The new Bing conversation mode builds on the existing Bing experience to provide users with a new type of search interface. Bing conversation mode generates responses using an AI model that has learned by processing a vast amount of text from the Internet. Based on the user query or prompt, the model produces an output that is coherent, relevant, and creative, according to the input and the context. The output can be a response, a web result, a poem, a story, a code, an essay, a song, or anything else that can be expressed in natural language. Bing Image Creator similarly uses an AI model that has learned by processing a vast number of images from the Internet. Based on the user prompt, the model generates an output image. The conversational model is also informed by and refines its output using available context, such as web results, feedback, and interactions, to improve its performance and accuracy. Ranking within conversation mode generally relies on the same parameters as the main web search results page.“
It appears, at least initially, that many of the same things we help our SEO clients with will be true for the time being. There is another interesting evolution that AI has the potential to help personal injury attorneys and others with in their research.
