Abstract: Today search engines are becoming necessity of most of the people in day to day life for navigation on internet or for finding anything. Search engine answer millions of queries every day. With the initiation of the Web and search engines, online searching has become a common method for obtaining information. People search for information on a daily basis, for various purposes: for professional tasks, or for non-professional tasks[4]. Today, there so many search engines available on the internet globe like Google, Yahoo, Bing, MSN, etc., each competing to provide the best recall results. Here, a comparative study is made on the different search engines like Google and Yahoo to analyse their precision rates, to predict the quality of the retrieved results[1]. The information provided after the search query can be categorized in different ways: relevant, irrelevant, sites that cannot be accessed, and links. The results are provided based on the type of queries posted, for popular queries the engine works even faster by providing the suggestions to the users. Different search engines use different techniques to provide the results and these techniques are studied and analysed. Here, an attempt is made to provide the suggestion regarding the effective search.
