12 favorite – most popular web search engines

What is a search engine? According to Wikipedia A web search engine is a software system that
is designed to search for information on the
World Wide Web . The search results are
generally presented in a line of results often
referred to as search engine results pages
(SERPs). The information may be a mix of web
pages, images, and other types of files. Another comprehensive definition of a search engine was given by wepopedia Search engines are programs that search
documents for specified keywords and returns
a list of the documents where the keywords
were found. A search engine is really a general
class of programs, however, the term is often
used to specifically describe systems like

users to search for documents on the World
