In Stanford University Larry Page and Sergey Brin were doing their research in 1996. That research particularly bore today’s Google. It started off its journey on 4th September in 1998 as a search engine. Though the birthday of the company is on 4th September 1998 but the domain google.com has been registered as a domain in the September of 1997. The company which was established in two friends’ garage is 19 years old now.
Google as a search engine
Google is the number one search engine today. For 19 years the tech corporation is continuously bringing new services. Interestingly, the name Google is a fruit of a mistake. The mistake was noticed later. Nevertheless, it has not been changed for its increasing popularity. Consequently, it has been registered with the wrong name.
These days, Google has become a synonym of the internet, actually. Regarding the organization, there is a notion people have that whatever you seek, Google will not disappoint you. Whatever you write in the search box you will definitely get relevant information.
For the long 19 years, Google has been tightly tied with the latest technology. Particularly in search engine technology the company has achieved unprecedented success which made the company indomitable. The organization is not lagged in hardware and software sector too. We already know that Google’s popular android operating system is dominating solely in the mobile device software segment. Currently, 85 percent Smartphones and Tablets are operated by Google’s android. From the sales perspective, android outdid iOS. Besides, it is supplying mobile devices manufactured by contract based mobile manufacturers. Additionally, Google advanced the tech world with innovative wearable technologies as well.
Nowadays, Google acquires one company in each week. Till June of 2016, the company acquired 190 companies. In Google’s primitive age it was run by only 3 persons, who are two co-founders and Craig Silverstein, very first employee of Google, but now it has 57 thousand and 100 employees.
