    Interesting read: http://searchengineland.com/googles-natural-language-search-gets-smarter-236166

    Google has improved its ability to comprehend more complex questions. This is all well and good, but it makes me wonder if this opens up some new holes in opportunities to rank in longtail keywords in the form of such phrases. For instance will this change how Google figures out which sites are appropriate to display for queries like "buy game of the year 2014" and so forth? At very least it means including superlative information of ecommerce descriptions may become profitable.

    They become better and better no matter how much we blame their lies :) No wonder many people are going fully white in terms of optimization.

    Google has open sourced its AI Engine. You might want to look into TensorForce.

    Another thing this tells me is that Google may well be improving inn their ability to "read" sites' content and tell if its sensible or spun garbage. If you remember, a few months back Google was said to be looking into testing content by checking facts present in it. Meaning if your content is all fluff it may not rank as well as content that sites solid facts and statements that Google can verify. Pair that ability with this context reading and Google may be nearing a new step forward in content judgment. We'll see.

    TLDR: Google can understand synonyms better - although, I presumed they already could.

    Non-story.

    You know the technology Google uses, and which is released to the public is already old for them.

    Anyway, I hope Google will "improve" the leaving the industry part, with all that spying their doing for big USA agencies.

    Didn't mean to bash your thread OP.
