Working of search engine
How Search Engine Works
Search engine perform many task on your website; here i will give you all steps which is perform by search engine.
- Calculating Relevancy
- Retrieving Results
First search crawl the page to see what things is there. Process of fetching all the web pages linked to a website. This task is performed by a software, called a crawler or a spider (or Googlebot, in case of Google).
After a page is crawled, the next step is to index its content. Process of creating index for all the fetched web pages and keeping them into a giant database from where it can later be retrieved.
When a search request comes, the search engine processes it, i.e. it compares the search string in the search request with the indexed pages in the database.
It is likely that more than one page contains the search string, so the search engine starts calculating the relevancy of each of the pages in its index to the search string.
The last step in search engine activities is retrieving the best matched results. Basically, it is nothing more than simply displaying them in the browser.
