We all know Google. And we all use Google when we search. They have become the most powerful Internet company of this moment. But how does Google work?
There have been written a ton of articles about how Google works, but most of them are explanations from people outside of of Google. There’s nothing wrong with that, because those people are likely to be unbiased. But those people do not have the complete picture.

Google is giving basic information on how their search engine works. But on a rare occasion people are allowed inside Google’s headquarters to see a glimpse of how Google works.
This month Wired journalist Steven Levy has been allowed to join the Google Search Quality team. They are responsible for the development and improvement of Google’s algorithm: the heart of Google’s search engine.
Wired managed to get some inside information and comments on how Google works. I highly recommend reading the article which extensively describes how Google’s search engine works:
