What is concept behind a search engine? How do they
work? Are they all the same, or do they have different systems? How do
they search images?
Different search engines employ different strategies -- sometimes very
different strategies. The details are too much to go into in a forum such
as this, but I searched the term: "How search engines work" on
www.google.com and found a lot of hits. That search engine I find to be
one of the more efficient if you are looking for specific factual information.
