From Search Engine to Global Technology Leader!
Google is one of the biggest tech companies in the world. They own the most popular search engine, they make the Android operating system, and they even have their own line of smartphones. But how did this all come to be? Who are they, really? In this blog post, we’ll take a look at Google’s humble beginnings as a search engine startup to its current place as one of the most powerful tech companies in the world.
Google was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University. Their original mission was “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” At first, Google was just a search engine like any other.
But what set them apart was their use of PageRank, an algorithm that ranked results based on how many other websites linked to them. This made Google’s search results more relevant and accurate than other engines at the time, which simply listed results in order of popularity.
Google quickly rose to become the most popular search engine on the internet, and in 2001 they debuted their now-famous “Don’t be evil” corporate motto. As Google continued to grow, it began expanding into other areas beyond search. In 2004 they released Gmail, their free email service.
In 2005 they purchased YouTube, the largest video-sharing website. And in 2007 they released Android, their mobile operating system.
Today, Google is one of the largest companies in the world with over 70,000 employees in more than 100 countries. They continue to grow at an astounding rate and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. So what will they do next? Only time will tell.
Google started out as a simple search engine but has since grown into one of the largest and most powerful technology companies in the world. Their success is due in large part to their focus on quality and innovation. As they continue to grow at an amazing rate, there’s no telling what they’ll do next. Whatever it is, we’re sure it will be big.
