How Search Engines Work

Google Librarian logo

The first edition of the Google Librarian Newsletter is available. Future issues will include articles contributed by librarians, links to library-related web sites, and updates on Google products and services.

The feature article in this first issue addresses the frequently asked question, How does Google collect and rank results? It covers the basics of search engine indexing and how the Google algorithms determine the order in which your search results appear. There are also some exercises for students.
