Google Hummingbird: An Introduction

Google's Hummingbird is an algorithm developed to power its search engine. It was designed to better understand conversational search– questions, rather than just a single keyword– and to make meaningful connections between related topics. It was implemented by Google in September 2013 and is currently the backbone of Google's search engine.

How Does Google Hummingbird Work?

Google Hummingbird works by focusing on understanding the context of search queries instead of just the individual keywords. It can match queries more precisely and effectively by recognizing synonyms and word relationships, such as "doctor" and "physician". It can also make connections between related concepts, such as "musician" and "instruments", and can interpret more complex searches, such as "How can I reduce my cholesterol?"

Hummingbird is also able to better understand 'conversational search', where a person types a natural language query like, "What is the best Italian restaurant near me?" rather than the specific keywords "Italian restaurant near me". This means Hummingbird is better able to return more relevant search results that are more tailored to the user's query.

How Can Digital Media and SEO Services Help With Google Hummingbird?

Google Hummingbird is a powerful tool for ranking and indexing webpages, but businesses can take advantage of its capabilities even further by implementing digital media and SEO services. A well-developed SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) strategy can help to optimise your website's content to meet Hummingbird's standards and rankings. This can mean higher visibility and conversions from your website.

Businesses can also use digital media services, such as social media management, to better optimise digital content for Hummingbird. Social media posts that include non-keyword phrases, such as natural language, can increase the chances of a successful Hummingbird query. Additionally, using keywords in blogs and other content can also help in achieving better rankings with Hummingbird.
