How Does Google Latent Semantic Indexing Works?
Ever wondered how Google matches your documents with respective keywords? Being a largest search engine google uses its Artificial intelligence. Do you know what google artificial intelligence is?
Google has its own algorithm for matching raw queries with the related documents all over the World Wide Web. Google artificial intelligence is consist of Rank Brain, Rank brain is an algorithm which enables google to process search result to provide more relevant result to the user as related to their queries . To enable this process Rank Brain uses Latent Semantic Indexing algorithm.
Latent Semantic algorithm can be understood as such follows:
Latent semantic indexing (LSI) is an indexing and retrieval method that uses a mathematical technique called singular value decomposition (SVD) to identify patterns in the relationships between the terms and concepts contained in an unstructured collection of text.
Google LSI works as follows
It analysis the query entered by the user in the search engine and then recall it from all the appropriate documents matches with that query then for making it more precise it matches the more relevant terms according to user query with relevant data available after that it gives the most relevant one documents as a result on its SERP .
How LSI Relates does matches your keyword with the user’s query?
It uses some parameters which are as follows:
- Close Variations
What are synonyms?
Synonyms are the words which has same meanings as your keywords such as “Positive” has the same meaning as “Optimistic”.
Hence when someone searches on Google “Positive Thoughts” Google LSI automatically matches it with “Optimistic thoughts”
What dose close variations means?
Close variations are directly related to the words which are related to your keywords as such “Floor” is related to “Flooring”
Hence Google consider Singular plural forms under close variations
For Example: If someone searches “Doggy food” on Google then Google LSI directly relates it with “Dog Food” and gives the result of it.
Now we have to take Polysemy into account:
Polysemy words are those which have different meanings when they are used in different sentences such as apple means “Mobile phone” and a “Fruit” here google LSI is unable to differentiate between it hence in this case google gives more value to the words by which “apple” is surrounded.
