Search Engines


Software that searches for data based on some criteria. Although search engines have been around for decades, they have been brought to the forefront since the World Wide Web exploded onto the scene. Every Web search site uses a search engine that it has either developed itself or has purchased from a third party. Search engines can differ dramatically in the way they find and index the material on the Web, and the way they search the indexes from the user's query.

The terms "search engine" and "Web search site" are used synonymously, although the former technically describes the software and methodolgy used, while the latter refers to the site itself. See Web search sites.
