Searching the internet

Hi there, this is a bit of  basic question, however i don't actually work with this side of programming so i'm a bit of a newbie.

Basically, i'm after an application that can search the internet, the application needs to be able to do something like tihs:

1) Search all websites for a specific keyword (be it a menu item or any item written to screen)
2) Capture information about that keyword, ie all information on that page

Do you have to search on meta data or can you search on keywords in the actual pages...  i'm interested to know how this works.

Where do i start looking for this sort of information.

Many Thanks
