A novice guide to how search works

Ever look at Google and wonder how in the world it actually works the way it does? If we didn’t do this all the time professionally I could easily see how this would be, almost literally, rocket science. To most this is a very baffling, extremely frustrating, process. While this is by no means a scientific look at how search works, if you are one of these folks, this could be the thing you are looking for. Aside from being a great primer on how search works it is also a great example of the use of modern web practices to have this story unfold in a dynamic fashion while never leaving the page. In my book, this is a multi-faceted win and even a seasoned pro would benefit from a quick look.
