    Now not only the words but meaning shall also be given importance. It has enhanced the voice search too. I was reading about humming bird and the name has rightly been associated.

    Can this update affect any SERP ranking of your keyword? Can anyone explain this?

    Hi Vishal, I suppose you need to work on keywords again. Keyword planner should use this algorithm while suggesting addgroups and keywords.

    Panda, Penguin and now Hummingbird, I think this major algorithm will do serious changes. :)

    I would like to change my statement, actually this Humminningbird update has already arrived. Past month only they updated their entire Search System. Few days back only Google announced this officially.

    If you haven't been affected by previous updates, Hummingbird should not affect your website. It is essentially a souped up version of their previous algorithm. It uses parts of the old algorithm and makes them better, and adds some newer parts to make it more accurate. You can now ask a question, rather than using a keyword phrase, and get a more accurate answer. For instance, instead of using the keyword phrase "buy android phone", you can now ask "What's the best place to buy an android phone?" and Google will know to give you results for stores you can go to. More information can be found here.

    You can start by following the link in my post above, and/or the OP's original post. For future reference, please do not post a single sentence - give a little information about what prompted the question.

    This is simply one more reason to improve your content. The search engines will continue to improve their ability to deliver the best answers to a search inquiry. If you provide worthless content in the hope of snagging some easy money, your sites will continue to fall in the rankings and your traffic will fall right along with it. You need to give the people what they are looking for.

    There is, as far as we know, no specific update to the link building process. If you have been following Google's Webmaster Guidelines, and doing things the way you're supposed to, the "Hummingbird" update will not have a detrimental effect on your rankings. If not, the spammy link building techniques that some use still will not work.

    Check out Hummingbird here - http://searchengineland.com/google-hummingbird-172816,

    I wouldn't worry about the update just yet if your traffic has been untouched right now, you probably survived the update, but still it's good to read as much as you can about it!

    The update is basically aimed at improving search results quality by handling long and detailed queries in a better manner. And to make search better on smartphones and tablets which use voice for search.

    It does not have much impact if any on rankings.

    Hi Rahul! I would try to put maximum details here. First we must know what this Humming bird is all about. This bird is known for its peculiar features. These birds are very fast while flying and can be compared to larger birds. Also, while flying high and fast they can change the direction to backwards with the same speed. When asked to Google why this name? they said, "for being fast and precise". When Google search was started years ago, it only used to give preference to keywords. more keywords on page and higher were the chance of listing ur site on the first page with good rank. This gave birth to spamming and unethical practice by many seo people, so they updated the algorithms and keywords were not the sole criteria. relevancy, domain authority, no duplicity of content, user friendliness e.t.c. became important. Till a month's before after u put a keyword, the site of a leading company used to be served earlier. say u entered toothpaste in Google and a leading toothpaste company's site used to come on top. now the Google will talk about toothpaste in totality. the use of it content of it and all details that talk about toothpaste will be served now. also if u r logged in to your Gmail and ur position is recognized then the service provider's, who is near to your location, details will be served. Now, the search as a whole is improved a lot. Google will return with most relevant pages now. in short we can say, "Humming bird is a soul to the search process".

    hummingbird is not designed to affect keyword rankings (Just like any other Algorithm updates). It only improves how Google responds to complicated queries especially long questions.

    Hi,

    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.
