|Google's new search engine, code-named Hummingbird|
Google is a teenager, turning 15 years old and to celebrate, they have introduced a major search engine overhaul plus a revamped app for iOS users. Google has changed the algorithm on its search engine. The last major update was in 2010, code-named Caffeine.
The new search engine version is code-named Hummingbird, and was actually introduced about a month ago. It's designed to improve over 90% of complex searches. "Hummingbird makes results more useful and relevant, especially when you ask Google long, complex questions," Roya Soleimani, a Google spokesperson, explained in an email."
"It pays more attention to each word in the query, ensuring the whole query is taken into account." Even if one is uncertain of what one is searching for, Hummingbird will attempt to present results relevant to one's search criteria. Meanwhile, if there are plenty of relevant matches to one's search terms, it also does a better job listing the most relevant web pages for the user.
