It is a web tool used to find information for specified keyword on world-wide web.


Search Engine make use of automated software applications such as robots, bots , spiders or crawlers to navigate through web to find matching results. These robots are algorithms that will aid Search Engines to check websites and store up contents that are published regularly on world-wide web.


Some of the search engines that are well-known world-wide web includes Google, Bing, Baidu , MSN Search among others.


How search engine works…


Search engine crawler sent out

The search engine first send spider software to crawl the web for document and their web addresses. The Robots are to go out and look for website that have just published new contents on their blog or website.


Spider returns….

After the search engine spider might have gone out and gathered new contents , it will now send their discovered contents and their addresses to the data centre that has been set up for that purpose.



At this stage of search engine mechanism and operations, the database extracts the real information that need to be stored from what is been captured and this is been stored for future purpose when those contents will be provided to online users.

The algorithms are not disclosed to anyone. Web owners rely on experience to decide on the right thing to do when posting new contents.
