[_] Google - Personalized Search For everyone - Is that will be end of SEO ; )

Is this just Google's answer to lazy browsing habits? I have noticed than
recently it's so much less effort to type 'Confwused' into the Google search
box (see it fixes the spelling!) and click a link, than bothering to type
all those slashes and dots to see car insurance.

Supporting this is a few TV ads that I've seen suggesting that viewers
'search for xxxx' rather than displaying a web adddress.
