Indexing a page on internet:

Once, the spiders have completed the task of finding information about Web pages, the search engine must store the information in such way that you are able to use it. The search engine may provide some information relating to relevance of information may be in the form of Ranking. Thus, a search engine may store the keywords of a web page, number of times that word appeared on the page, the URL of the page. A weighting factor that gives more weightage in case a word is found at the top of the document. Each commercial search engine uses a different formula for assigning weight to the keywords in its index. This is one of the reasons that a search for the same word on different search engines will produce different results.  Since, the data that is to be stored for indexing is large, therefore, search engine may encode it. The Index is created with the sole purpose, that is, it allows you to find the information on the Internet quickly. In general, Index uses hashing (you will study this concept in the Data Structure course).
