When you put a website online, search engines will need to send out “bots” and “crawlers” to find keywords that tell them what your page is about. Then it creates a tag for the web page and files it in the search engine’s database. This process is called Web Indexing.

So the spider / crawlers / bots (HTML & text reading software) are sent out, crawls every web page out there, then stores it in the Web Index. Then based on Google ranking algorithms it will then match user queries with results.
