The Google : Unquestionably World Class !.....

For the past few days, I have been reading about a concern which is undoubtedly the most incredible findings of the modern days…. “The Google Story” by David A Vise. The name which has been misspelled as Google in place of Googol (10 to the power 100), has become synonymous for search among people across the world.

Larry Page & Sergey Brin who were the founders of the company, have basically started this as a Research Project at Stanford University while doing their Ph.D., in January 1996. They have conceptualized the page rank notion which ranks the web pages in relation to the number of times the search term appears in it, to give effective search results. After having tested their thesis, they first registered the search engine with the domain of “google.stanford.edu”, using Stanford University website. After around two and half years, the “google.com” domain came into existence. Andy Bechtolsheim, one of the founders of Sun Microsystems, was the first third party, to invest $ 1,00,000 towards the startup in Silicon Valley. They have leased a complex in Mountain View, Silicon Valley which from that day was known as Googleplex.


This Is How Google Search Page Looked In The Initial Days

That is the brief history of the concern, which, within a decade of it’s existence, achieved revenues in Billion Dollars, marked as the best place to work world over ( Leaving behind giants like Microsoft, Yahoo etc etc ) and many more milestones….. Over and above all these, with the products ranging from, Search, Gmail, Google News, Orkut, You Tube, Blogger etc etc, we are in no position to imagine a life without all these or in simple terms, GOOGLE !......
