Google Video About Semantic Search and Brie!

Semantic Density and Google's algorithm

At the beginning of the 2010s Google started to use relevant information to determine what a keyword meant. In the video, you will watch a Google engineer explain how related key phrases help establish what a word means. Here they use the example of the cheese "brie" to explain in the video. He states "ile-at-villaine", the department of France where brie is from, among other phrases that can identify Brie. Our algorithm show that this is true of the search results. Semantic Density shows:

  • "ile-at-villaine" is also the 2nd most semantically relevant phrase in the content of the site in #1 for "brie".
  • "Seine-et-marne", the town famous for brie, is highly relevant to the site in page 2.
  • "Raw milk" and "unpasteurised milk" feature in 2 of the top 5, and "milk cheese" is the most relevant phrase to the site in #1.
