The Internet is a huge ocean having an abundance of information and providing relevant results is the duty owed by the browser depending on the quality of the content.

Basic principle:

Now, let’s see what is the basic underlying principle of it, when the client searches for something by typing a relevant word in the Search Engine like Google, Yahoo etc, then one other thing comes into the scenario and that is Crawler. What Crawler does is search for everything on the server and keep the list of the website, pages, blog that have the relevant information on the topic fed by the client.

The crawler picks all those resources that match the requirement of the client, either by having the proper keyword, past traffic history, relevance of information or credibility of service.
