As we all know, Google Search is the number one search engine in the world. It’s often the go-to for any searching needs and hardly needs an introduction. But have you ever wondered how, exactly, Google Search works? It’s not just a text box that generates answers to your burning questions. It’s a crawl base engine – meaning it has software designed to crawl the world-wide web and find the information you are looking for.
