So Google's new Algorithm codenamed HUMMINGBIRD has been live approx 3 - 4 weeks and surprisingly there is a lot less chatter about it than i would have thought.

So what is Hummingbird and how does it differ from other algorithm updates?

In a nutshell the Panda and the Penguin updates were put into place to help clean up the SERPS (search engine results pages) and remove as much of the useless and spamming websites who have used bad SEO techniques to get a good ranking. These sites were poor quality and offered very little user experience. 
This update did have its ups and downs and many webmaster had been negatively hit by this update even though they hadn't necessarily used bad SEO techniques. All was not lost though as it meant they had to focus on changing the websites to improve user experience and improve on mobile compatibility and page speed.

Panda was the main update and Penguin was a improvement on it.

So now we have Hummingbird. And no, this isn't another update to Panda. Its a whole new algorithm. Its focus is on Semantic Search. What is that i hear you say...... Semantic search seeks to improve search accuracy by understanding searcher intent and the contextual meaning of terms - click the attached link for more info about Semantic Search.

When you use semantic search, Google will dive into the relationship between those words, how they work together, and attempt to understand what those words mean. Google will understand that “their” and “they’re” has two different meanings and when “New” and “York” are placed together, it changes the meaning.

It means that keywords in your website are no longer guaranteed to help your rankings. You need to help Google understand the content behind the search terms which ultimately will mean your customers will be getting better and more accurate information for what they searched for. Thus leading to better conversions and subsequently a lower bounce rate.
