What changed to the long-tail search algorithm?

Many webmasters detected a change for long-tail keyword website content in search result ranking. Can anybody elaborate more on this topic to clarify what Google changed in their algorithm regarding long-tail keywords?

The updates to long-tail search happened one day in May, and this is why most webmasters refer to it as “Mayday.” This was a change in Google’s algorithms meant to improve long-tailed queries. This is not a temporary solution, meaning that if your website’s rankings have dropped, you should look for ways of improving it. Google usually makes such improvements and updates many times a year.
