A search engine or Internet search engine is an application program that is specifically designed to perform internet searches, meaning to search the World Wide Web in an automated manner for specific information defined in a text search query. The search engine can either use a Search Server or a Web crawler. The text input/output includes the results of the search, in the form of hyperlinks, in graphical form (XML). One can also get extensive details about any query by means of XML search.
The term ‘Search Engine’ was first used by Tim Berners-Lee in 1986 and thereafter it became the de facto standard terminology for representing the workings of computers that could store and deliver search results from web pages. With the advancement of web technology, search engines have come a long way in providing users with faster access to information on the World Wide Web. Users can specify search keywords by means of text, tags and format. In this way, the web search engine parses text into search engine friendly formats that are easily accessible by other users and search engines such as Google. The user can even specify the kind of search to be conducted.
Major search engines like Yahoo and Google provide their users with the latest search engine results based on a keyword or a set of keywords. Yahoo started offering its ‘sponsored search engine’ service in 2021. This is the way in which Yahoo matches advertisements based on keywords entered by its users. The results are shown in the sponsored area, above the normal search results.
On the other hand, Google started offering its ‘Google Science’ project in 2021. Google Science is an instant search engine that displays relevant results from selected scientific studies from all over the world. Google Science is an offshoot of the project named ‘Google Brain’. This project is still in the research stage and includes many researchers from various universities and institutions around the globe. Google provides links to related websites when you use its search engines.
On the whole, Yahoo and Google are two of the most widely used search engines in the world. These companies cover the majority of the global population. Yahoo started out as a web directory, while Google started out offering information on search results based on keywords entered by its users. These search engines give users a good indication of what the topic is about, where it is located in the world wide web and other relevant information.
Other search engines such as MSN Bing, AOL Search, and Yahoo! Answers also give live search results depending on a topic. With Bing and Yahoo! Answers, users can find answers to frequently asked questions, answers that may not be on the Internet. Live search results are very important because the right question can be answered more quickly and more accurately by a human than by a program.
The biggest threat to the market share held by Yahoo and Google is Netland, an alternate search engine. Many observers have speculated that Yahoo’s decision to enter the market was in response to Microsoft’s unsuccessful attempt to control the online search market. Microsoft’s Bing and Google’s other competitors, namely Microsoft-owned Waywire, CNET and AOL, all hope to capitalize on the success of Yahoo’s entry into the in search market. In addition to providing a new means for advertisers to reach their target markets, cc search also has the advantage of providing a service that many other search engines currently do not offer.
If Yahoo and Google cannot hold their own against a search, what will happen to the rest of the search engines? Some analysts speculate that within a few years, Google could be forced to compete with a search and that could mean increased prices for ads and some form of fee structure for users. Other experts suggest that while they see a search as a threat to Google, they do not foresee any major changes in the way the search engines perform their searches. Regardless of the way you look at it, the recent developments in the online world will no doubt continue to impact the way people use technology.
