How does a search engine work and make money?
Google’s search engine allows users to input and submit data online. In return, the user would receive relevant search results. Behind the scenes upon the submission, web crawlers scan through billions of pages and link keywords from a user’s data to the publish data on the web. Their PageRank technology ranks these pages by the number and popularity of other sites that link to the page. This provides the user with accurate and popular results.
