    I had to laugh about this one. Hummingbird is not an update to the algorithm like Panda or Penguin, but an entirely new one according to Web Pro News. It is suppose to be Google's biggest update in 12 years and they have only existed 15 years.

    Hummingbird hit a month ago, so we don't need to worry about being hit again! Thank goodness. All of that was bad enough.

    Here is an article on Search Engine Land with more information.  http://searchengineland.com/google-hummingbird-172816

    What animal will be next???

      They are using everyone's favorite animals. I guess it is suppose to give us positive vibes about it. The technique doesn't work when our traffic goes down.

        Oh Well... I guess when one rules the world and is courted by so many who habitually bow to all one's whims... we mere mortals, should be thankful that our own pets are not directly subjected to the vibes and indignities of having a search engine attached to their private parts!  big_smile

    Why don't they call it monopolistic tax-evading privacy-abusing NSA stooge?

      That would be more appropriate, but it just doesn't have that warm, fuzzy ring to it you need to get people to keep using your search engine.

    Naming it Hummingbird makes it seem so delicate and sweet, but i'm sure it will have an effect somewhere. Its supposed to make google more conversation, I guess more 'siri' like. I think thy would have been better off improving the algorithms they already have.
