What determines the order of websites when a search is done on a search engine?

    I mean, if you search "golf clubs" for example, it will show some big golf retailers at the top of the list. Are these just the most visited sites or do they pay a fee to be at the top?

    And if they are the most visited sites, how did they attract so many visitors if they were at the bottom to begin with?

    I was just wondering. Thanks.

    They tag their website with the most popular search terms. They also pay a fee to which ever search engine they use to advertise on.
