The History of Search Engines

Search engines have come a long way since their early prototypes, as our Internet Search Engines History infographic illustrates.

Lycos started strong with a system categorizing relevance signals, matching keywords with prefixes and word proximity; and

Ask Jeeves introduced the use of human editors to match actual user search queries.
