Correct Answer - Option 2 : Search Engine

The correct answer is Search Engine.

  • A search engine is a web-based tool that enables users to locate information on the World Wide Web. Popular examples of search engines are Google, Yahoo!, and MSN Search. Search engines utilize automated software applications (referred to as robots, bots, or spiders) that travel along with the Web, following links from page to page, site to site. The information gathered by the spiders is used to create a searchable index of the Web.

 

  • Search engines have three primary functions:
  1. Crawl: Scour the Internet for content, looking over the code/content for each URL they find.
  2. Index: Store and organize the content found during the crawling process. Once a page is in the index, it’s in the running to be displayed as a result of relevant queries.
  3. Rank: Provide the pieces of content that will best answer a searcher's query, which means that results are ordered from most relevant to least relevant.
