What is the History of Google?
As a PhD student at Stanford University in Stanford, California, started in January 1996 as a research project by Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
Although the traditional search engine ranked the search term on the page on the basis of how many times the count was calculated, while the two guessed about a better system, which analyzes relationships between websites. He called this new technique to be ranked PageRank; It determines the relevance of a website based on the number of pages, and the importance of those pages, which are linked back to the original site.
Robin Lee was a small search engine designed by Design IDD Information Services, “Rankx”, since 1996, was already searching for similar strategies for site-scoring and page ranking. Technique will be patented in Rankedx and later when Li founded Badu in China.
Page and Brin nicknamed their new search engine “Backbob” basically, because the system examined backlinks to estimate the importance of the site. After all, he changed the name to Google, the number of non-spelling of the word “googol”, one hundred and one zero after the number one, which was shown to provide a large amount of information to the search engine. Originally, Google participated with the domain under the Stanford University website, google.stanford.edu and z.stanford.edu.
The domain name for Google was filed on September 15, 1997, and the company was incorporated on September 4, 1998. It was based in a friend (Susan Vojiciki) garage in Mello Park, California. Craig Silverstein, a fellow PhD student at Stanford was first named as an employee.
In May 2011, for the first time Google’s monthly unique visitors were more than one billion, an increase of 8.4 percent from May 2010 (931 million) In January 2013, Google announced that it had earned US $ 50 billion in annual income for the year 2012.
