How Do Search Engines Work?

How do web search engines work? I don’t mean how to use the search engine but how it finds all the information. There are more than trillions of pages of information online and to find just that right webpage, just make me wonder how it is done.

A search engine is designed in enabling people to find anything on the world wide web by using keyword searches and can be performed through either entering a single keyword, a full phrase or part of a website domain name. Unlike an internet browser, which requires the exact URL address of a website, you can quickly find what you're looking through a search engine without having the exact or specific details.

How do search engines work?

The leading search engine companies like Google, Yahoo and Bing all have web spiders or bots, which are programmed crawlers and store billions of indexed pages on the world wide web in their database libraries. This allows people to find what they're looking for when they visit a specific search engine and type in any keywords.

You can enjoy quicker search engine indexing by bookmarking your website or any new pages. You simply bookmark and ping the URL of any new website pages or updates and this process allows the search engine spiders to find your new updates quicker.    

How do search engines rank websites and pages?

Each have their own algorithms, but Google who are by far the biggest search engine on the planet have a specific criteria.

  • Good Website Coding
  • Keywords (Title, Description and Content)
  • Fresh, Unique and Updated Conent
  • Inbound Links
  • Domain Age

Search engines including Google are constantly changing their algorithms and the ways in which they value a website and relevant pages. Their number one aim is always to offer the user a good experience by way of ranking websites with their relevant content. If you want to rank high for certain keywords with any search engine then, having the correct approach will allow your indexed information to be in a healthy position when people search for the specific keywords. Your number one aim should always be to reach page one on Google and the main search engines for any related keyword searches.
