I ran across this informative infographic by SEOBook describing the elements of Search and how your queries make their way through a search engine like Google resulting in a SERP-Search Engine Results Page.

They want you to find the closest match to what you are looking for in the least amount of time and enjoy your experience. Google Cares!
