Storing query results like <a website that stores a lot of data>
how does sites like <a website that stores a lot of data> store its search results......there's a separate node after each query.
Storing it in a database would mean huge execution time so is it like XML or anything similar?

Why do you think it would mean huge execution time? Don't you think database engines are written to run hundreds of transactions efficiently?
There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.

Databases are extremely fast at handling huge amounts of information, primarily through the use of binary searches and related algorithms. A binary search can search billions of database rows in milliseconds.
XML is a terribly inefficient format in pretty every way possible.
