In today’s world, people from all around the world rely on the search engines in order to easily find what they are looking for. This helps the consumer to find different options in one place and choose what is best suitable.
Google’s latest algorithm BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) was introduced in the year 2017 and in October, 2019 Google announce that BERT would be applied in US based production search algorithm. Later, in December 2019, BERT was applied for more than 70 countries all over the world. This major update is Google’s neural network-based technique for natural language processing (NLP) pre-training.
Google said “BERT models to both ranking and featured snippets in Search, we’re able to do a much better job helping you find useful information”. With this update, users get more appropriate search results than before as Google has improved the language understanding capabilities.
This algorithm can now understand the context and find out ambiguity in a given search string and then transforms the query by looking at surrounding words that might be close to the string and finally returns the result which are close to the searcher’s intent.
