Hummingbird update and How does thisd impact your site

Google Seo Ranking Factor- Hummingbird Update –

Google ‘ Humming  Update has been one of the most dramatic changes in terms of Google Algorithm changes 

These are some of the factors your must follow in order to ensure that ” your site does not fall victim to the ” Hummingbird update

  1.  Hummingbird looks at PageRank — how important links to a page are deemed to be — along with other factors like whether Google believes a page is of good quality, the words used on it and many other things (see our Periodic Table Of SEO Success Factors for a better sense of some of these).
  2. Google continues to give iportance to the backword links , however sudden increase in backward links are not considered ” relevant” as good content wil develop organic links on its own ,instead of generating spammy redirection links 
  3.  The key to building backlinks is to take the time to do them properly. The Google Panda update began the process of putting emphasis on the quality of the backlink and not just the amount. As Google has continued to advance their backlink analysis  it now includes contextual measurement – which means that the type of site the link originates from needs to have a logical relation with the site that the link points at.

These Five Websites Captured 20% Of All Search Result Clicks:  How much  traffic does a big brand gets from Google.? Does being bigger in size , helps  getting Indexed in Google Faster ? than a brand that is not well known ? Ideally the answer should be No.. However in Reality being Big does makes it easier to get a   good SERP ( search engine result pages )at Google

Going further, the top 500 websites received almost 50 percent of all clicks from search results, and the top 10,000 websites got almost 75 percent of all search clicks.

All of this is according to the 2013 Digital Marketer Report from Experian Marketing Services (Hitwise).
