A common question I get is "How often do the suggestions in Google autocomplete change?" and that is often followed by "How long will it take to fix my problem?"
In the video I describe two of the ways we've historically seen autocomplete change.
One way is through news spikes, where a popular story gains traction in mainstream media and people turn to Google to look for more information. This influx of content + search activity can cause a spike, which results in suggestions changing very quickly.
The second way suggestions change is through a Google refresh which over the last few years, seems to occur every 2-3 weeks. This does not mean it will continue to work that way in the future, I have no way of knowing that! But it has been how it has worked in the past. Every few weeks, we'd notice changes to all our active client campaigns.

Before you hire any reputation management firm to fix your Google Autocomplete problem, I strongly recommend you ask them point blank: "How are you going to create search activity?" I can tell you from experience that most campaigns that create search activity using computerized bots, proxies/IP switching, or crowd source sites will fail.
