A Survey on Search Engines


Shiwani Gupta , TCET


Search Engine, Information Retrieval, World Wide Web


Web surfing for various purposes has become a habit of humans. Searching for information from the Internet today has been made easier by the widely available search engines. However, there are many search engines and their number is increasing. It is of considerable importance for the designer to develop quality search engines and for the users to select the most appropriate ones for their use. The Information quality linked through these searches is quite irregular. There are fair chances that the retrieved results are irreverent and belong to an unreliable source. In fact, most search engines are developed mainly for better technical performance and there could be a lack of quality attributes from the customers’ perspective. In this paper, we first provide a brief review of the most commonly used search engines, with the focus on existing comparative studies of the search engines. The paper also includes a survey conducted of 137 respondents where the identified user expectations will be of great help not only to the designers for improving the search engines, but also to the users for selecting suitable ones. The objective behind this study was also to find the reason behind poor precision and recall of so many available search engines. The study finally aims to enhance user search experience.
