How Google Understands YouWhen searching with Google you have certainly come across results that weren’t really relevant to what you were looking for. Everyone has and a lot of people complain about occasional irrelevancies.

And then again chances are that 99% of your searches have been successful and you were able to find what you were looking for. We know for a fact that Google offers some of the most precise results for pretty much any keyword.

But have you ever wondered how is all of this possible? What steps does the search engine take to give you the exact result you are looking for?
