Engines There are a TON of great search engines out there for you to choose from. And today, there are hundreds of factors influencing the relevance of a search result.

They also dont want web creators to game the system and unfairly climb to the tops of search results. Over the years, smart engineers have devised better ways to match results to searchers queries.

Originally, search engines ranked sites by how often keywords appeared on a page, which led to keyword stuffing filling pages with keyword-heavy nonsense.
