What’s New in SEO: Meet RankBrain, the Newest Addition to Google’s Search Algorithm
Recently, Bloomberg Business had the scoop on Google’s new search results-processing technology, called RankBrain. The new system is a form of artificial intelligence, meaning it can build upon what it already knows, rather than needing a human to guide it each step of the way.
RankBrain is just one part of Google’s Hummingbird search algorithm, to the best of Search Engine Land’s understanding, and it doesn’t handle all searches. As a reminder, a search algorithm is a system that processes search queries and combs through billions web pages in order to rank the best ones first. Essentially, Rank Brain is doing some of the heavy lifting for the algorithm, automating part of the process for Google’s experts.
A senior research scientist at Google said RankBrain is the third-most important signal when it comes to ranking web pages. What are the first two? Google won’t reveal. Check out Search Engine Land’s FAQ article to find out all that has been revealed about RankBrain to this point.
