    Or perhaps a vague and ambiguous one.

    What exactly do you want to know ?

    The comparison is fairly simple: such sites either have an automated process to extract information or a team of workers to extract the needed information and save them in a database. This is usually a bunch of "criteria" and each entry or item that is in the database has a correspondence to each criteria.

    The user builds a a search query and this query is evaluated in regard to the data corpus, using similarity formula such as euclidean distance, cosine distance, block distance or fuzzy distance.

    If you have any specific questions, go ahead.
