Definition Edit

A web search is a search for information on the World Wide Web.

Overview Edit

"A Web search service's fundamental task is to take a user's query, traverse data structures that are effectively proportional in size to the total amount of information available online, and decide how to select from among possibly millions of candidate results the handful that would be most likely to match the user's expectation."[1]
