    Nice insight. I especially like the comment “Post-Hummingbird and post-secure search is all about measuring the content”. The measurement portion has changed from the pre-Hummingbird days that were focused on only keyword rankings and conversions. This is likely the aspect that will take many marketers the longest time to grasp, acknowledge and resolve. Now there’s a need to look more closely at KPIs that measure content views, engagement and retention.

    Humminngbird is all about long tail search queries. If your page is well optimized for such query with content as well as Meta, it will reflect on top of the list.

    Great information Jim! I couldn’t agree more about tracking performance at the page level. That’s not to say that you can’t look at the site level, but by focusing on individual pages, you’re able to provide better insights to clients about where their customers are coming from. In tracking performance at the page level, analytics can be more easily tracked to see how often a website is taking its visitors by the virtual hand and walking them through the sales cycle of your website.

    Very on point. With Google Hummingbird, Keywords and content have become more valuable. Since mobile searches have dramatically increased, conversational searches have become a norm. I love that Google Hummingbird was designed to adapt to such searches and create more “human” type searches. I believe it brings more accuracy and quality to searches.

    Nice article some very insightful information. I found most my clients weren’t effected by this update but seems the ones that where got hit hard and are now in the recovery stage working on creating better content and more trust online.

    While interesting, this article provides no specifics steps to address the Hummingbird update. I have worked hard to play Google’s game for years. Soon, Google will be irrelevant as they attempt to monopolize search and dictate how and when and where to search. Google says to “answer the questions the users have” while ignoring their dedicated base. I know I’m one person with one opinion….but so was Nelson Mandella.

    Goodbye Google…I won’t play ANY of your games anymore!!!
