    What type of update did hummingbird bring? If you have any summary links please share, dont give long articles links.. Dont have time for that!

    Thanks

    EDIT - WOW! I did not know this would blow up so badly on me. Anyways now that I read it, it does kinda sound douchey. Sorry about that.

    What I meant, How hummingbird will affect your IM business? And for the link, I though somebody might have a short description that could be easy for my adhd mind to read.

    We can't all sit here and spoon feed you information about an update that's still relatively new. There are so many articles around the internet with decent information on hummingbirds impact. And you'll get much better information there than you would from people that just want to increase their post count, because this question is a little insulting for reputable members to answer.

    And we don't have time to find short articles. If you don't know how to find your own information, IM isn't for you. In which case, you don't need to know the answer to such questions.

    If you dont have to time to research an update how do you have time to create content, websites and rank them?

    I don't know why we can't spoonfeed if members have been helping out people who don't know what Scrapebox is or how to find a niche or how to write or what a software does or where to find proxies. Either post a link to where they can find the answer, or don't post.

    There are more than enough people who are more than ready to delicately feed the newbies, at the detriment of the newbie. lolseo's and tojamie's threads are examples of this, with senior/elite members holding the spoons. Stop getting soft, it just hurts BHW.

    This thread isn't even a spoonfeeding thread, it's asking a legitimate question. The answer is we don't really know what's up totally, though there are plenty of opinions, but things don't seem all that different than before.

    Theres been some hopeless spoonfeeding threads recently with questions asked by vips and senior members who appear to be unaware of a search engine called Google. At least they asked nicely though, and in some way implied that they valued peoples time and efforts.

    Look at this clown

    "Yo whats up with the hummingbird shit ? tell me in 2 sentences or less how I getz back to the big rankz. Dont go linking me to anything I have to read my time is too precious for that"

    Guy deserves a spoon up his ass.

    Hummingbird has to do with long tailed queries and should have little affect on SEO as I have been saying since it launched. Matt Cutts' video from Pubcon (was shared here) reinforced my thoughts on the algo change. Basically what Matt said is Hummingbird has to do with setting importance to main keywords in a query string. For example, if you search "Bike Trails In Seattle while eating cold cut meats", they put more importance on what matters most in the query string, which is "Bike trails in Seattle". He went on to say that it really shouldn't affect your SEO efforts unless you are building out tons of meaningless pages for the purpose of casting a wide net with irrelevant long tails.

    If you want to hear him talk about it go to 6:29.



    "The fact is it doesn't affect (SEO) all that much."

    You beat me to the punch. Hummingbird has nothing to do with SEO as far as link building is concern. It has more to do with google showing relevant results for long tail queries. I guess because hummingbird was announce a week before penguin 2.1 update, people think that hummingbird was the cause of loss rankings. I'm even starting to see services popping up selling hummingbird recovery packages lol.

    I agree, but the way OP asked looks like he thinks the world owes him a favor. Demanding a short, precise description of an algo :\ I spoon feed new comers daily in plenty of threads and PMs because they're polite and genuine.

    Woah! this blew up all in my face.. I have edited my question though.

    Why I asked this was because I am seeing lot of web 2.0 properties such as webs,blogpspot,google sites.. just sitting there on the first page. What type of new requirements to rank nowadays? What is google asking for?
