What Is The Google Hummingbird Update ?
“Hummingbird” is the name of the new search platform that Google is using as of September – 2013, the name comes from being “precise and fast” and is designed to better focus on the meaning behind the words. Read Google-Hummingbird FAQ here.
Google-Hummingbird is paying more attention to each word in a query, ensuring that the whole query — the whole sentence or conversation or meaning — is taken into account, rather than particular words. The goal is that Web Pages matching the meaning do better, rather than pages matching just a few words.
Google Hummingbird is planned to apply the meaning technology to billions of Web Pages from across the Web, in addition to Knowledge Graph facts, which may bring back improved SERP results.
