Google SGE, Search Generative (AI) Experience Expands to 120 Countries

Google says that they are expanding SGE, Search Generative Experience, which is basically AI-driven search experience to 120 more countries. They initially launched it in just three countries, and now Google says that this has been well received by users. People find it more informative when AI adds additional context to their search. They’re also adding four new languages, and a couple of upgrades that will make SGE more interactive, including AI-powered translation help and more definitions for topics. And here is what you can do as a nonprofit or a ministry. First, Google your own ministry name, your own brand name, and see what AI gives as an information. This will help you understand what people are seeing when they search for your name with AI’s help, which is only going to increase in the days to come.
