Google has quietly added song lyrics to Google’s search results answer box for queries that are relevant.
For example, a search on [stairway to heaven lyrics] returns a massive answer box, with much of the lyrics of the song, followed by a link to the Google Play store.
Here is a screen shot:
We asked Google to confirm this was a new feature and why it was added, but we have yet to hear back.
Glenn Gabe was the first to notice this update, posting it on Google+.
To many of the lyrics web sites that monetize their sites based on traffic from Google, this can be a big concern for them going forward.
In October, Bing started adding full song lyrics to their search results as well.
This is one more example of Google’s Knowledge Graph and Answers box directly impacting those businesses.
