Search Engine Means Google, Seriously?
A big No friends, because Google is not the only search engine that is only availed to surf the information over the internet.
Now the big question and the motto of this blog is why do we need to read about Search Engine? So the reason is that Search Engine and its way of working is the first thing on the road map if you want to be the online marketing specialist. After all, you have to be the Search Engine Optimizer.
Two questions stand when we talk about Search Engines; first is what a Search Engine is? and the second is How Search Engine Works?
Don’t worry we are not going to hit the shitty history of Search Engines rather than we will directly understand the actual Search Engine, So
According to Wikipedia:
“A web Search engine or internet search engine is a software system that is designed to carry out the web search which means to search the World Wide Web in a systematic way of particular information specified in a textual web search query.”
In Short Manner
A search engine is a software that helps you to find your answer about almost anything.
Even when Google was founded their mission was
“To organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.”
Now Google’s corporate mission is:
- World’s information
- Universal accessibility, and
The Search engine provides you the list of results that are best matches to your query those we formally are known as keywords.
Little History of Search Engine!
The first search engine which was developed is considered “Archie”, which was used to search for FTP files and if you want to ask that what was the first text-based search engine? So it was the “Veronica”
And as we know that in today’s world the best search engine is “Google” which is used to search anything no matter which format, like:
- Image or Gif,
- PPT, PDF or Info-Graphics, or
- Video, etc.
How Does Search Engine work?
As we discussed above that there are many Search Engines but every search Engines have its complex algorithm behind providing the exact search results.
But how these all search engine results have provided?
There are some intent consist of a WebPage that indicates the whole WebPages intent, then the search engine Bot understands the users’ query and matches it with the Webpage’s intent if it matches so it will be shown on the Search Engine Result Page (SERP).
The interesting part is the whole process has to be done in just some factors of seconds, isn’t?
As I told you that each search engine has its algorithm it means that all search engines will have different rankings on a particular query. I.e. if someone ranks for a keyword in Google will not be prominent to rank on Yahoo as well.
Although this topic is very long I don’t want you to stick in this, that is why I have summed all about search engines in just some words and I hope that now you have got my intent.
