The Basics – How do Search Engines work?

Internet search engines are special sites on the Web that are designed to help people find information stored on other sites, such as your website. There are differences in the ways various search engines work, but they all perform three basic tasks:

1) They search the internet – based on important search keywords.
2) They keep an index of the words they find, and where they find them.
3) They allow users to look for words or combinations of words found in that index.

Top search engines such as Google, Yahoo or MSN Bing will index hundreds of millions of pages, and respond to tens of millions of queries per day. Through the process of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) we can help your website dramatically increase its exposure and be at the forefront of these searches when people look for information within your respective industry.
