Google Search Engine Architecture

The two guys Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the founders of Google , they invented the architecture about how Google will show the results in SERP (using relevancy and popularity both) . Larry page invented the algorithm according to which they analyze the sites and provide a particular rank according to those, named as "Page Rank" (named after the name of its creator Larry Page). Originally, the algorithm was named BackRub after its emphasis on backlinks. Later, its name was changed to PageRank because of its
connections to Larry Page’s last name and the ability for the algorithm to rank pages.

Larry Page’s original paper on PageRank, “The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine,” is still available online. If you are interested in reading it, it is available on Stanford’s website at

The best way to understand the Google search engine architecture is to read the original paper written by Larry Page, the link I have mentioned above. So If you really want to know how google is working, then go grab the opportunity. Good Luck. !
