Search engines are the doorway to the World Wide Web for many people: Search engines help us when we are looking for information or when we would like to visit a specific website but have forgotten the address. When we enter search terms (input), the search engines display a list of “matching” websites (output). Search engines thus help us find our way better around the Web.
