It would not be possible to find a single person in the world who use internet and has not heard about Google. Google has such a reputation, that people use it as a synonym of search engine. Be it finding best sites to play  online roulette or locating the nearest hospital near your place, finding rarest of antiques or locating cheapest online sale, if we want to search for something online, we would simply say ‘just Google it!’ This is because Google has evolved out to be the undisputed ruler in the world of search engines. Although there are many big search engines like Yahoo Bing and other search engines, but Google has enjoyed unparalleled success than any of its counterparts and is the king of search engines.

The Google Story
However, it has not been a cake walk for Google. Google came into play when there were other search engines doing well and they were all working hard to gain their supremacy as number one search engine in the world of World Wide Web. Google team has worked very hard and sincerely for its success. When people search something on the Internet or Google, they get the kinds of result that they expect. These results are far better than what they get in other kinds search engines. It is for this reason that Google has become the first choice when it comes to search engine.

How Google become number one search engine in the world?

Have you ever wondered, how Google is able to give such correct results all the time, or at least in most cases? After all, it is artificial intelligence; it is not have a brain of its own and still it is able to deliver results with such accuracy. If you would like to know more about this, then we invite you to read this article and find some interesting facts about Google and develop an understating about how Google works.

Getting started with Google working procedure
If you want to understand anything, then the best way to learn it is by learning its fundamental; this is better known as ‘learning from scratch’. Therefore, when you want to understand Google and want to know about how exactly it works then you should first understand the basic concept of Google.

The first thing that you need to know is what exactly is a search engine? Well, the phase search engine consists of two words - search and engine. Search simply means to look out for something and engine is a mechanical component in a machine that is responsible for its movement and it generates and supplies the energy that is necessary for the movement of a machine.

Therefore, a search engine can be defined as a mode of conveyance for the internet users that they use when they want to find out something on the Internet. These search engines act as an intermediate force between the user and the search results and help the user find the kind of information that they are searching on the Internet. This information can be in a form of text, pictures, videos, graphics etc.

Application of a search engine
The need of a search engine can be easily understood. Internet is made up of different websites and if you start counting their numbers then they would well exceed not millions but billions! These websites are of different categories and they are on different subjects called niche. Therefore, if you are new to internet and you do not know the name of a site to go to for the purpose you are looking for, then it might become a very difficult task for you to find out the content that you are looking for.

Understating the fundamental concept of operation of a search engine.
This can be understood by a practical example. If you want to go to a place called ABC, and you do not know which way to go and you are standing at a certain place, then ask yourself what would you do? Well as we understand, you are probably going to look out for help; you are either going to ask the pedestrians that are passing by for the directions and thus, get an idea about the place and then follow their instructions. You can even use online Maps service or any navigation app and follow the instructions provided by it.

The basic fundamental is that when you do not know something you seek for help. When you get the help you follow the instructions provided by the helper. The search engine performs the same task. Whenever you put a question in it, the search engine process your inquiry and then searches for its relevant matches from its database and then delivers the result to you in form of search results.

This is the only difference between a search engine and the practical example stated above. In case of the above example, you will simply look out for a single place and there is likely to be either one or possibly two ways or routes to going to your target destination. If you ask different people about the route, they are going to tell you more or less the same kind of route because there might not be many routes that could be followed.

However, in case of an internet search, the options available are numerous. Therefore, if you are looking for answer for a certain question, there might be hundreds and thousands or even more websites that provides accurate and useful information about that topic. Therefore the results for your question or search query, that will be reflected by the search engine will be in hundreds, thousands and sometimes, even more!

You need to first understand this basic principal of search engine operation and get your fundamentals about this subject clear, so that you can prepare yourself for the next level of search engine operation, which involves complex algorithms and different kinds of permutations and combinations. The best part is that you can simply Google these queries and get best results for them as well on Uncle Google!
