The Internet has become a vast, global storehouse of information. The only problem is: how do you find what you're looking for? Search engines index each word within internet documents. When internet users pose a query to a search engine, it matches the query words versus the records it has in its databases. The search service responds by giving a list of all the Web pages in its index relating to those topics. The most relevant content will appear at the top of the results.
