The world’s biggest search engine Google has turned 19 years old today. The Singapore based tech giant is now celebrating the 19th anniversary of the company. Larry Page started a search engine in 1997 as ‘googol’. Years passed, finally it has become the world’s top search engine and it is now Google. During these times, Google has changed a lot. They have expanded their business with new advanced technologies and more internet-based services.
By improving and expanding their internet-based services and products, Google has become one of the top technology companies in the world. Now they have hands in almost all tech areas including mobile platforms, desktop platforms, software platforms, advertising platforms etc.
Google released a new Doodle for celebrating this happeiness and here is the official release notes from the Google:
“In 1997, one of Google’s co-founders, Larry Page, had just arrived at Stanford University to pursue his P.h.D in computer science. Of all the students on campus, Google’s other co-founder, Sergey Brin, was randomly assigned to show Page around. This chance encounter was the happy surprise that started it all.
From there, the two came together with a common goal in mind: to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful, a mantra that would go on to become Google’s mission statement. The two hunkered down in a garage – Google’s first office – and got to work.
Billions of searches later, perhaps the happiest happenstance has been how Google has grown throughout the past 19 years. Named for the number “googol” (a 1 followed by one hundred zeroes), Google inches closer to its namesake each year, currently serving more than 4.5 billion users in 160 countries speaking 123 languages worldwide.
