Google Promote, Remove and Comment Feature - Effect on SEO

Google Promote, Remove and Comment Feature; Is it a death-knell on all established SEO techniques? What is it's apparent effect on Search engine optimization? How is it going to affect the SERPs (results page)? A colossal change has just been made by big G. Google could not have gotten better at what it does. It revolutionized the search engine all over again.

Everyone online is sort of an open book to Google whether you want it or not.
