Millions of searches takes place on Google. Ever wondered how the Google search process actually works? Google launched a new website yesterday and appropriately named it “How Search Works”. This website offers an easy to understand 'behind-the-scene' view at the search process, from beginning till end.
Jake Hubert, the Product Manager at Google said in a blogpost, “Here you can follow the entire life of a search query, from the web, to crawling and indexing, to algorithmic ranking and serving, to fighting webspam.” He further adds, “The site complements existing resources, including this blog, the help center, user forums, Webmaster Tools, and in-depth research papers. We hope the site helps to illuminate the split-second journey from algorithms to answers.”
On this website, one can see an graphical and video explanation of the search process, as well as get a deeper look of Google's search algorithms and search.
A detailed pictorial page with graphs provides us with a view of on how big is the spam problem and how Google fights it.
