Graphical Abstract:


Background: Regardless of the significance of medium scale search engines, a few scholarly researches are based on them. Besides, we regularly hear about innovation and web expansion in this research area. Recently, making a web search engine is altogether different from the past years. Here, we introduce MSSE (Medium Scale Search Engine).

Methods: Recent publications and patent databases of search engines are reviewed. MSSE is a prototype of a medium scale search engine. It makes overwhelming utilization of the existing structure in hypertext. MSSE is intended to crawl and index the Web content efficiently. The search in this engine produces accepting results competing for conventional systems.

Results: The proposed model of this work was introduced as prototype. The prototype introduced was at least of 500000 pages. These pages were associated with a full text (content) and hyperlink database. In addition, we use OPNET modeler as a metrics environment of MSSE in order to verify the obtained results about the performance of the search engine.

Conclusion: We provided an in-depth description of MSSE. This work addresses this inquiry of how to design and create a practical medium scale system that can add extra information introduce in hypertext.

Keywords: Search engines, page rank, WWW, information retrieval, scaling, prototype.
