Search engine

Search engines are web sites providing search services to find web pages related to search terms used by users.

Search engines use automated computers called robots or bots to find web pages.
Web pages found by robots are copied and stored on databases of search engines and subsequently get indexed and ranked.

Different search engines use different algorithms to rank web sites and that is the reason different search engines return different results when using the same term.
