Search engine technology provides a methodology or framework to facilitate search on the World Wide Web (WWW). The installed software program initially examines and explores its database considering the keywords provided as search items and helps in retrieving the data related to those keywords. Automated systems constantly search for content to keep abreast of recently updated data or content on the web. The rapid growth of the amount of data on Internet has brought in new problems in terms of analysis, organization, retrieval, and capture of the massive information. As traditional search engines are based on early directory services, they are currently facing limitations regarding the management of massive heterogeneous information search. Hence the need for search engines with expanded search scope and enhanced search speed and efficiency has emerged. Such engines with enhanced search technology and improved efficiency are called next generation search engines.
Demand for new technologies and need of relevant information are expected to support the growth of the next generation search engines market during the forecast period.
