Visual Google SGE

AI Overviews (former SGE) is Google's new search engine that uses generative AI to summarise relevant and informative search results in an area above the organic search results. These search results are often supplemented by other elements such as Google Shopping.  

Google appears to be satisfied with initial tests in the USA, India and Japan and has rolled out the function in 120 other countries. Currently, the EU, Switzerland and the UK are still excluded.

Challenges and Opportunities

Google's AI Overviews creates new conditions in the "SEO Game" for marketing, content, and SEO teams. Without a new strategy, the visibility and organic reach of topics and product descriptions are at risk. AI Overviews challenges entire business models. This is especially true for online publishers who monetise through targeted online marketing or ads, billed based on impressions or clicks.

At the same time, AI Overviews also offers the opportunity to stand out from the crowd through page-specific, user-specific content—and to build visibility and customer connections through tailored responses!  


  • Content Quality: Informative texts that can answer questions about purchase decisions increase visibility.

  • Niche Positioning: Specialising in a topic increases the chances of AI Overviews picking up and displaying the content to your potential customers.

  • Google Shopping: Maintaining data in Google's Merchant Center becomes even more relevant to ensure the creation of additional touchpoints with users.


  • Content Discovery:  shifting forward; information is collected in the search engine and organic traffic to website is reduced.

  • Organic Traffic: Reduced organic traffic leads to a decrease in touchpoints with customers and increases pressure on communication.

  • Time Efficiency: Time spent creating relevant content to improve user experience; product descriptions and texts should always be enriched with up-to-date information and align with buying intent.

What Does This Mean for the Content Strategies of E-Commerce Companies?

Product Detail Pages

Include information that aligns with the buying intent and answer questions that potential customers genuinely ask; provide the opportunity to generate user-generated content (e.g., product reviews and images).


Keep your pages consistently up-to-date to turn every customer interaction into a positive experience. This includes updating inventory, highlighting product changes, addressing seasonal features and sales.

A/B Tests
