There is no argument that Google is the number one search engine, so in this article post I will share with you the procedure Google use in handling search query.
Almost every individual believe that Google is a magician but NO, it is not. Google will only display the information in its database if your search query matched its crawled web pages.
In my today’s article, I shall update you on The Very Simple 3-Step Procedure Google Use in Handling Search Query.
What on Earth is an Algorithm?
Each search engine has something called algorithm which is the formula that each search engines uses to evaluate web pages and determine their relevance and value when crawling them for possible inclusion on their search engine.
What is a Crawler?
A crawler is the robot that browses all of these pages for search engine.
Google Algorithm Is Key
Google has a comprehensive and highly developed technology, a straightforward interface and a wide-ranging array of search tools which enable the users to easily access a variety of information online.
Google users can browse the web and find information in various languages, retrieve maps, stock quotes and read news, search for a long lost friends and basically surf the 3billion odd web pages on the internet!
Google boats of having world’s largest archive of UseNet messages, dating all the way back to 1981. Google’s technology can be accessed from any conventional desktop PC as well as from various wireless platforms such as WAP and i-mode, handheld devices and other such internet equipped gadgets
Google has a very simple 3-step procedure in handling a query submitted in its search box:
Step 1: When the query is submitted and the enter key is pressed, the web servers send the query to the index servers. Index server is exactly what its name suggest. it consist of an index much like the index of a book which displays where is the particular page containing the queried terms is located in the entire book.
STEP 2: After this, the query proceeds to the document servers, and the servers actually retrieve the stored documents. Page description or “snippets” are then generated to suitably describe each search result.
STEP 3: These result are then returned to the user in less than a one second!
NOTE: Approximately once a month, Google updates their index by re-calculating the page ranks of each of the web pages that they have crawled. The Period during the update is known as the Google dance.
