The volume and range of information on the World-Wide-Web is awe-inspiring. Without search engines to almost instantly locate relevant web pages for us, and the navigation tools within web browsers, using this huge resource would be almost impossible.
An Introduction to Search Engines and Web Navigation introduces the reader to the search and navigation technologies that are an integral part of our daily online lives. It covers the historical background of hypertext and the web; the problems of search and navigation; the technical and architectural aspects of search engines; web navigation and the mobile web, and finally examines what we might expect in the future. It is ideal for undergraduates studying web search, and those on general web technology courses.
