What happens when you do a web search?

Do you know how search engines such as Google work?

If you’re like most people, you probably think that when you type in your chosen keywords that Google searches the Internet and provides its search results in less than a second. The fact is that while Google is good, even it can’t produce results this quickly. The search results that are provided to you are actually sourced from Google’s index of the Internet.

This video from Google explains the process very well and can help you improve your own website’s search engine optimisation.
