All Ask Computer and Internet Glossary
A Search Engine is a website on the World Wide Web that indexes other websites. Users are able to enter a word or phrase that they are interested in and have the search engine check its index and return relevant results. A meta-search engine checks multiple search engines each time it is queried. Search Engines are increasingly offering other services to users besides searching online indexes.
