Well there are many examples in python. Some use Wikipedia API (like mine) and other people used Google Search API. You could also use web scraping for this.

i don't think using css, js or html is useful for that, try using some other useful language. Maybe the c's.

The frontend is, yes, but 90% of the code, which is in the backend, uses a variety of different non-HTML-JS-CSS languages.

The other languages I know are Python and Java. Can we use them as the backend?

you need other languages, other than html, css, and js.

You can make something like this:

  • Make an UI that is like Google (with HTML/CSS Ofc), that takes an input from the user
  • After that, generate a link that will go to the search result of the input though Google (use JS for this)
  • Finally, show the link to the user or lead the user to the generated link

If you want to make a real search engine, then I think you should stop thinking about using HTML/CSS/JS. It is a bit more advanced and you will need to use a programming language like C or Rust or whatever for this.
