Web search engines are driven by software code that searches for information on the World Wide Web, returning a list of web sites, web pages or web documents where search terms, keywords or key phrases were found. Search engines send "spiders" to gather information from as many documents as possible, while an indexer reads these documents and creates an index based on words contained in each document, using proprietary algorithms.
