Google is celebrating its 22nd birthday today with a doodle. Page founders Lawrence "Larry" Page and Sergey Brin christened their page Google, borrowing the mathematical term Googol, which refers to 1 to 100 zeros.
The official registration of her name took place on September 27 tου 1997, one year before the official start of the company.
Today's Doodle celebrates the 22 years of existence of one of the largest internet companies.
In the beginning, Google ran in Stanford University subdomains (google.stanford.edu and z.stanford.edu).
The Google domain was registered on September 15, 1997, and in mid-1998 Page and Brin raised $ 1 million from investors and friends to launch the first Google on September 4, 1998 in a friend's garage in Menlo Park. California.
The company grew rapidly when it became the official search engine of Yahoo!, one of the most popular websites at the time. By mid-1999 it was processing 500.000 queries per day and by 2004 it had reached 200 million searches per day.
According to Google co-founders Lawrence "Larry" Page and Sergey Brin, their company is based on 10 positions:
- Loyalty to the user and everything else will follow.
- It's better to do one thing really well.
- Fast is better than slow.
- Democracy on the internet works (ss: hmmm).
- You do not need to be in your office to get an answer.
- You can make money without doing harm (s.s .: hmmm).
- There is always more information out there.
- The need for information transcends all borders.
- You can be serious without a suit.
