Appreciate Google RankBrain
RankBrain is the artificial intelligence system that Google uses in order to correctly process the many search results that it gets. It is important to make sure that you understand that while RankBrain is not the method in which search results are ranked within Google, but rather a vital part of the algorithm used in determining which pages are the most relevant for the keywords that are used in the queries made online.
You might wonder how RankBrain makes much of a difference compared to the artificial intelligence systems that were used in the past. Basically, in the past, the exact keywords used in the search function had to appear verbatim in the text of the websites, or those pages would simply not show up.
Now, with the advancement being made with RankBrain, Google is now able to find and rank pages that are suitable for the search terms used, without the search terms needing to be exact matches. Think of synonyms and how many more quality pages you could be looking at if the computer search engine was a little smarter than before. Well, now it is and Internet users are able to find more of what they need a lot easier. This also gives companies a better chance at getting the attention they need.
