This is an undergraduate-level textbook explaining how search engines work. It discusses in reasonable detail, how a search engine crawls the Web, prepares the documents for indexing, creates and stores the indexes, and processes the queries to retrieve the documents. Other chapters discuss classifying the documents into clusters, social search in an online community, and retrieval with understanding that documents have structure (refer to entities, have dependencies between words) as opposed to being simple bags of words.
