What is a Search Engine?

A search engine is a service that allows Internet users to search
for all types of content on the World Wide Web. It does this by
requesting the user to enter a few keywords for what they are
searching for and it will spit back out a list of results. It is
able to display website links, videos, shops, maps, images,
and many other forms of online data. It is a very simple tool
that helps users navigate the WWW for information they need
