Google got the answer to almost everything, but the real problem is the framing of the query to get a right and quick response. Sometimes we face the issue of the spelling, not getting the right word or sometimes the language problem. To fight such issues, Google has a BERT update, that will help in the quick and valid searches. Let’s dig more about Google algorithm BERT and how useful it will be for users?
What is BERT?
BERT stands for Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers. It improves Google search by using the neural network that will help in understanding the purpose behind the queries in a better way. This pre-training model is not a 2019 concept as it was developed in 2018. It is one of the most significant updates from Google in the last five years. The new update will be going to affect one in every ten searches. It will likely affect the longtail searches, more useful to nuances of the query and to know more, spend a few more minutes in below reading.
Decoding the Queries
We understand by this time you might be thinking how the latest search updates going to help you, and how does it mean to you? With the implementation of BERT, the ranking, and snippets in the search will be able to produce more useful and required results. In case of longer and queries, where words like “to” or “for” matters a lot, you will get the desired results without spending much time. Now you can search that is more familiar to you.
Earlier, Google uses the algorithm that will process the result as per word order from left to right. To know the new update, let’s understand examples given by Google. Here, we need to keep in mind that the user English is average.
Query: “2019 brazil traveler to the USA needs a visa”. So before the BERT introduction, Google interprets the question that the user is asking details about USA person traveling to Brazil needs a visa. But now Google will display the result of Brazilian traveling USA visa details. With the new update, it will understand the intent of the query instead of just words. We hope with the above-stated example; the BERT role is much clearer.
Let’s take one more example: “do estheticians stand a lot at work.” Earlier it would take up the word ‘stand’ with ‘stand-alone’ and hence, results were according to stand-alone. But using BERT, it understands the word ‘stand’ means physical demand and thus display the desired result.
Currently, it is deployed in USA English, but it planning to implement in other languages soon. As per the Google blog, to achieve the easiness in search, Google waved goodbye to traditional hardware and opted latest Cloud TPUs for the first time. As the traditional hardware was not capable enough for the complex BERT and processing quicker and relevant information.
It is very difficult to track the difference at the granule level. But the new upside for the content creator and SEO is that now they can write more conceptual concepts for real people instead of “writing for machine or top-rankings aim”.
Be a ringmaster of the show by opting the following strategies:
- Create unique and valuable content
- Focus on providing a fantastic experience to the users
- Focus on Longtail keyword
- Stop focusing on keyword density
- Focus on content that contains a specific and quick answer to the user query
Now with this update, experts believe that good content sites will have an advantage. So till now, you have not ready with the content strategy; then, its the high time to get the top ranking with the quality content.
Google it for Better Result
For all our small and big queries, we tend to seek the help of Google. It will be now interesting to know that how Google algorithm BERT will going to affects the search result. With BERT update, Google Fellow and Vice President, Search, Mr. Pandu Nayak says, “Even with BERT; we don’t always get it right. Improving search is like a never-ending learning process.
