Google Has a New Algorithm

    Google has announced that it introduced a new search algorithm about a month ago. This one is called 'Hummingbird' and, unlike Panda and Penguin, this one revamps the complete Google search algorithm.

    You can read about the known changes here:

    From what I have read,this may actually help but it may rely more heavily on the hub's title than previously done.

    Well, well. I dodged a bullet and didn't even know it. I continue to muddle along. Which is what I do best.

      Looking back at the traffic on the HP site as a whole, there was a downturn in traffic after the Editor's Choice program was introduced, and an upturn began on August 24th when Hummingbird was introduced. Traffic today on the site is what it was after Google Panda rolled out in 2011 and has been flat (no real changes) in the past 30 days.

      Google hasn't stored caches for all of the sub-Topic pages since the site navigation was changed on September 17th, so we have yet to see the results from that. What is significant here is that the sub-Topic pages used to be crawled more frequently and may have lost some of their Google crawl priority when millions of site backlinks were removed.

      Traffic to my Hubs has increased since Hummingbird and continues to do so.

    I've seen better traffic over the past month, hoping it's due to Hummingbird not just season.

    It killed me. I've gone from 200 views a day to 5-6.

    Wait til the mating season begins.

    It seems that the introduction of Hummingbird coincides with my recovery from the heinous mid August slump many of us experienced.   That cheers me up somehow.

    I could not care less any more. Luckily my serious earnings, while garnered on-line, do not depend on tantrum-throwing toddlers at Google.

    Really surprised this isn't some big announcement, especially when it sounds like it is bigger than Panda or Penguin.

      As something of an expert in this field I can confirm that a Hummingbird is not bigger than a Panda, or a Penguin.

    Funny, how today, the 15th B-Day of Google there was a interactive doodle on a blindfolded kid wacking the piƱata with a stick - and that's how I felt trying to game the system with google. My hits didn't go up after the big dive.
