How Search Works

Bitesize Coding and Computing

Discover how search engines work through the example of a bear searching for honey in the woods. A search engine uses web crawlers to find information and send back a copy of each page. Algorithms are used to find the best match, and then the sites are ranked according to many factors, including how well the site is written, how frequently it is used and how popular it is. Students will learn that the algorithms are like the bees searching for the best honey.
