Programming a serch engine is something i've always wanted to do, but i've never been able to actualy make one. What i've been thinking of making is a simple search engine, which works half-decently. (maybe something simple, like a better version of wikipedia search). The problem i always get to are boolean expressions, ranking, and things like that. Are there any tutorials that can help? (some [google] hasn't found anything. All i end up with is page after page of search engine optimisations. For websites.) :( From, Nice coder

No tutorial, but you can expect to find some articles about database search on citeseer.

Most of the great algorithm (those of Google or Microsoft) are probably patented and you'll have hard time finding them.

Searching the web and searching a website is not very different and you can see the whole web as a single giant web site. Knowing good optimisation techniques that works for a website might help.
