How Google Search Really Works


Have you ever attempted to answer a question about a topic that you had never heard of before? What if the person asking the question needed an answer in a matter of seconds? This is the situation Google confronts each day. According to Google Fellow Ben Gomes the search engine has answered 450 billion unique queries since 2003.
“What makes it really challenging are the things you've never seen before, and yet you have to be prepared to answer. And as we get good at answering those things, people will ask us yet new things that we've never seen before.”
You can read more about how modern search engines work and what to expect in the future by reading Read Write Web’s interview with Mr. Gomes.
