Holy ###. Oh ###. And ###, and also ###. Where the ### does that stuff come from?
I have a page that use to rank high in Google but it is now no where to be found.
In 2018, Google made several major updates to their core algorithm that changed how it matched search queries to web pages, i.e. improvements to relevance.
I hate the term AI, it's like the term Cloud that gets so misused all the time.
Where did you get the 30%?
Last few months, Google has been using neural matching, --AI method to better connect words to concepts. Super synonyms, in a way, and impacting 30% of queries. Don't know what "soap opera effect" is to search for it? We can better figure it out.
"Google’s AI Blog recently published a link to a new research paper called, Deep Relevance Ranking using Enhanced Document-Query Interactions. Although this algorithm research is relatively new, it improves on a revolutionary deep neural network method for accomplishing a task known as Document Relevance Ranking. This method is also known as Ad-hoc Retrieval.
The new algorithm that was published in Google’s AI blog doesn’t directly use traditional ranking factors. However, traditional ranking factors are used first. Then the Ad-hoc retrieval part of the algorithm is used.
The research paper states that it is re-ranking web pages that have already been ranked.
