Searching within a database

Whenever we search for things on Google or whatever search engine that we may use, the results are usually listed based on the frequency that they are actually chosen by other users, the times, the word that we chose to research, it appears on the site, and figuring out which words are actually the important ones. I have never given much of a thought as to how search engines work but it actually entertained me a bit to know how they actually find what it is that we are trying to search for. It may be quicker and much more proficient nowadays than before when the internet was actually created because there are many more users now and because of the increase in the number of internet users it it increased which is a better search engine. I can say that now most of my friends and family uses Google but I can always think back to when askjeeves was used.
