    Fairy dust and unicorn tears.

    But if you are serious, read up on the Patents each search engine has submitted.

    If we talk about the Bing search engine, it works badly) The rest will not disclose their algorithms.

    Step 1: Crawling.
    This is the first step for Google to crawl the pages that exist on your website. Google will automatically send a group of Googlebot or searchers to your website and through links to discover new pages. These pages will later be indexed and retrieved when the content on this URL matches the search user information.
    Step 2: Indexing.
    After making sure your website has been crawled, the next step is to make sure that the web pages are indexed.
    Search engines will process and store the website's information in an index, which contains all the content Google has discovered.
    Step 3: Rarking.
    It is the process in which Google engine ranks and returns the search results most relevant to the user's query. In general, the higher the queue, the more Google believes that the website addresses the searcher's wishes most.

    Nobody will tell you 100% exactly how the search takes place, this is a corporate secret. There are just general ideas on what criteria indexing occurs, considering that there was a recent Google core update for December 2020, and no one knows exactly how Google search works right now.

    Hi, Search engines work by crawling hundreds of billions of pages using their own web crawlers. These web crawlers are commonly referred to as search engine bots or spiders. A search engine navigates the web by downloading web pages and following links on these pages to discover new pages that have been made available.

    The three step process:
    1) Crawling
    2) Indexing
    3) Ranking
    Most search engines like Google build an index based on crawling. Bots crawl the internet looking for new pages. The bots typically start with a list of website URLs determined from previous crawls. When they detects new links on these pages, they add these to the list of sites to index. Then, search engines use their algorithms to provide a user with a ranked list from their index of what pages user should be most interested in based on the search terms the user used.

    I think the best illustration is like a web and a spider in it waiting for an insect to land on it ; )
