you will need to study the principles of "Information Retrieval" ... a lot of preprocessing need to be done before your search engine can be built ... u need to remove "stop words" (you can google to find a list of stop words), need to stem the words (there are readymade stemmers available), create inverted page tables ... a word to page mapping (one to many) .... i have not created a search engine but will be doing so in the next few months ... hope this helps
