How Google Search Works?

Crawling

SEARCH STARTS WITH THE WEB. IT'S MADE UP OF OVER 60 TRILLION INDIVIDUAL PAGES AND IT'S CONSTANTLY GROWING. Google navigates the web by crawling which means they follow links from page to page

Indexing

Google sorts the pages by their content and other factors. And also they keep track of it all in THE INDEX (It's over 100 million gigabytes)

Algorithms

Google write PROGRAMS & FORMULAS to deliver the best results possible. Algorithms get to work looking for clues to better understand what you mean. Based on these clues, we pull relevant documents from THE INDEX

Google Ranking

Google then RANK the results using more than 200 factors like, Freshness of the Content Site and Page Quality Safe Search User Context Translation Universal search

Exploring The Search Lab

Google's algorithms are constantly changing. These changes begin as ideas in the minds of our engineers. They take these ideas and run experiments, analyze the results, tweak them, and run them again and again.

Finally Fighting Spam

WE FIGHT SPAM 24/7 TO KEEP YOUR RESULTS RELEVANT The majority of spam removal is automatic. We examine other questionable documents by hand. If we find spam, we take manual ACTION. When we take action, we attempt to NOTIFY the website owners.
