  • 7. The Search Engine goes through 3 main steps: 1.Crawling 2 Indexing 3 Information output
  • 8. Web Crawling – is done by web crawler or web spider which browses the web looking for new pages to get indexed (to save in cache).
  • 9. Indexation – is the process of collecting and storing data from web pages (usually this means a piece of source code form the top of the page).
  • 10. Information output – presents a user with relevant results when they type a search query in the search box.
  • 11. Quick sum-up So, the search engine looks for new pages on the web and adds them to its indexation list. Each page now is associated with particular keywords and will show up if a user inquires for these keywords. The search engine time after time visits the already indexed pages and updates information about them in its cache. For example if you add link on an indexed page the crawler will consider this link only when it returns to the page next time.
  • 12. Search Engine Result Page (SERP) You know how the SERP looks like:
  • 13. SERPs usually consist of paid search and organic search. Organic Search Results – sites that are ranked by a search engine algorithm. Paid Search Results – sites that bought ads from search engines to appear for specified keywords. In Google, paid search results have a slightly different color and are usually situated on the page’s top or right (sometimes at the bottom)..
  • 14. Position in SERPs We’ve already discussed the principles that make a site appear in search results for a certain keyword. But the site’s position is what really matters! You may have an excellent blog with food recipes but no one will ever find it if it has a > 100 position for all the relevant keywords.
  • 15.
