How would you go about making a search engine like google from scratch

In: Technology

There are several components in the Google search engine:

1. The “spider”, which browses through websites and collects the data.

2. The indexer, which parses the collected data and makes indexes of keywords and ratings.

3. The user front-end, where the user enters the query which gets parsed and searched against the indexes.

What’s the context of the question?

Are we in a world where Google never existed and we’re figuring it out for the first time?

Or are we trying to complete with Google today?

Because if you’re asking “how would you do it today” the simple answer is “you wouldn’t”. Google has already built an effective algorithm and gone through the process of getting everything indexed. Trying to replicate that process is somewhat pointless given that you can freely use Google’s service.
