What is "Hummingbird"

Does anyone have any idea that how “hummingbird” is working
what his effect on SEO?
i’m not getting any sufficient answer to understand “hummingbird”.
So please help me to find out the relevant answer about this query.


Humming Bird is new Google Search Algorithm, it’s updated in last month but Google is not officially announced in this month only.

According Google saying there is effect on SEO…

We need to work hard on generating more quality content for our website…

I guess it depends on how yow you define SEO.

The way I look at it is, Google’s business is based on getting and keeping users by providing the best results it can for the seach queries users are using.

IMHO if one uses good onpage SEO everything will fall into place on it’s own without need of any SEO-kiddie trickkery.

To me there seems to be way too much time and effort wasted on SPAM “link building” and too little spent on reducing bounce rate.

Its the new google update. As much as I know it is for search queries. 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 pages matching the meaning do better, rather than pages matching just a few words.

Its the name of the new search algorithm Google is using, and have Google return even better results.

Thanks to all of them for giving me a basic idea about Hummingbird.
Now I can easily understand the deepest concepts of it.

“Hummingbird” is the new update of Google which is all about whole search queries. It will take in account whole the sentence or question that searched and provide best matching results according to that sentence. It is not paying attention towards single word and get show all the websites having that word in the website. So it is very important to focus on the content writing rather than link building.

so far i know, hummingbird will be quick and faster than panda or penguin for detecting web spam. Now, seo will more focus in building good content and good link.

That isn’t at all what Hummingbird is about. The aim behind the latest algorithm is about understanding what people type in better, and interpreting natural language to give more relevant results.

Google launched its algorithm “Humming Bird” on its 15th birthday. Google keeps on updating its algorithm. When we talk about Panda, Penguin and many more Google updates, one thing is clear that Google wants high quality content so that users can get best updates. The new update i.e. Hummingbird will put less emphasis on matching keywords and more emphasis on understanding what a user is most likely hoping to obtain in their search results, so that users can get exact results for their queries. It is just another attempt made by Google to better serve the needs of their users.

The hummingbird is the new update of Google which is all about whole search queries and google has announced last month. The main aim behind Google update Hummingbird is google wants to give an accurate answer to user query and provide faster results.

Hummingbird is the new algorithm of Google, not just a new update like Penguin or Panda but Hummingbird is a totally new system of algorithm and is probably the biggest change they’ve made since they introduce Caffeine.
Hummingbird reportedly impacts 90 percent of all search queries. Hummingbird is also giving more attention to each single word in a query, ensuring that the whole conversation, meaning, question or sentence is taken into account, much better than just particular words.

Most webmasters are considering Humming Bird update a good update in terms of diverting traffic from search engine as compare to Panda and Pengiun update. So if your website traffic experiencing increase in traffic after long time that its due to Humming Bird update

In essence, and as dianagomes put it: just to break it down, ensure your content is not keyword stuffed and speaks to your target audience with unique text on your own site. How relevant is your content? Are keyword searches from Google landing on pages relevant to that search? If you want to get pecked by the hummingbird and ousted from the SEs, all you need to do is write useless content, set up stupid link baits, or just copy content.

It’s also geared to capture questions and find the best fit to answer these. Instead of taking a search of “where is the nearest workers comp lawyer to me,” and just looking for “workers comp lawyer,” Hummingbird will look for more of those words on the web page that were in the original query.
