But wait for a second and think how they are able to provide that related magical list of links?  

Here’s how it works: Google (or any search engine you’re using) has a crawler that goes out and gathers information about all the content they can find on the Internet.  The crawlers gather all the information and assist back to the search engine to build an index.  That index is then scanned through an algorithm that tries to match all that data with the searched query.  There are a lot of factors that go into a search engine’s algorithm which is another blog’s discussion.
