As we all know, Google is one of the most popular search engines across the world and it occupies more than 90% of the market share in 2022.
How Google Search Works?
Have you ever thought that How Google Search Engine works?
What are the Main Functions of Crawling?
However, only a few people actually know what’s inside. If you want to become a part of the small group, then you’re in the right place!
There are plenty of factors to be considered by Google to show relevant results to a search query, and we can’t able to say a single factor can determine it.
Whenever A user types a search query on the Google search engine, the function behind it will search index for relevant pages on various websites, store them in a large database, and show the relevant information based on the search query on the SERPs
For instance, assume that Google is a city.
In a town, there are houses that we can think of as “websites”.
Each room inside the house is like a different “web page” on the site, the stairs, and pathways that connect different rooms are “internal links” between the site’s pages.
Connecting these houses are roads, which act as “external links”.
Big popular websites are like a shopping mall with huge traffic.
The highest relevant information for the search query will be shown as a result and search engines rank your website based on three stages:
It is the first stage of a Google search function, the search engine spider or bot finds & discovers content by crawling it. The spider finds out what pages are existing on the web and collects text, images, and videos that are found on the web. There are billions of spiders who crawl billions of websites to find what is on the web page. It is totally an automated process of crawling a website and determining how often, and at what time intervals to crawl could be insisted. The main objective of crawling includes finding web pages and discovering them.
Once the web pages are crawled, it analyzes what is all about on your web page. Relevancy plays a crucial role in indexing, spiders decide how relevant your content is by analyzing your web page.
The functions of both Crawling and Indexing help to find & discover content as well as collect information that is found on the web page and analyze the web page based on relevancy as per the search query.
From the above functions, Google will return the relevant content as a result of the user’s search query.
