Google likes to constantly keep on top of things by release updates to their search engine. It seems that they’ve done it again. This time, the update in question is a new search algorithm called Hummingbird. The purpose behind this new Hummingbird algorithm update is to help return better results to the user. Hummingbird came online about a month ago, but just yesterday did Google decide to officially announce.
Does this mean the end of SEO? Nope! There’s nothing to be found that different in this update that anyone should worry about.
Search Engine Land was able to write up an FAQ about the Hummingbird update.
