chaseman Posted January 28, 2011 Share Posted January 28, 2011 Ok this is not necessarily a coding help question, but there was no other place to post it since there's no PHP General talk section. I'm wondering would it be a disadvantage to use PHP for coding a search engine? I'm reading a lot how Python (Google) is faster than PHP, and Microsoft probably uses ASP.NET for their bing.com. Imagine a search engine that searches only for mp3 music files. Would PHP be a disadvantage in terms of speediness and efficiency? I'm talking about search engines which search the whole web and not a local area, I'm stating it here to avoid confusion. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
