Web App – Search Engine and Web Crawler

Web App – Search Engine and Web Crawler


Project Description

This project consists of two parts, working of a Web Crawler and a simple Search Engine. The Web Crawlers checks for the validity of the URLs crawled online and inserts them into an SQL Database, and the Search Engine fetches the query from the database to show the best results based on keyword matching and closest keyword matching algorithms.

The project I created currently only has the backend at GitHub. The project uses PHP with simple HTML and Bootstrap to achieve the goals. I am currently working on the frontend using the bootstrap framework and implementing MapReduce algorithm to increase the accuracy of the Search Engine. The code will be updated soon!
