Because of the dstbuted netok foundatonof the web, connected uses can access andceate ne content fom almost anyheeth ease. As the web has gon oe theyeas, ths ncedble exploson of nfomatonhas led to the se of the seach engne tohelp uses make sense of the enomousolume of nfomaton contaned on thenetok. Seach engnes pode eleantesults to keyod-based quees that help
