A Collection of Resources To Tell The Story of Google

The mission

to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Can you imagine the web without Google? Can you remember the days when you had to rely on Excite, Yahoo!, WebCrawler, Lycos, Infoseek, and AltaVista?

In those days the search results were plentiful, but not accurate. The search engines would retrieve a long list of results but many of the results were inaccurate. Then Google (starting off as “BackRub,”) came along with search results that were relevant. Now, you could find what you were looking for.

It was all due to the Google algorithm, PageRank,  that involved using links pointing to a page to determine its popularity and relevance. Think of it as a voting system. If a variety of pages pointed to a page using similar anchor text (the text used in the hyperlink) then that page was popular and relevant to what the anchor text described.

Sun Microsystems co-founder Andy Bechtolsheim was so impressed with the search engine that he wrote out a check for $100,000 made out to Google Inc. Which remained uncashed until the two co-founders incorporated their newly formed company Google Inc. on September 4, 1998. Google opened its first office in Menlo Park, California.

Google filed for and received a patent for “PageRank” in 2001 invented by Larry page. The company also relocated to near Palo Alto.

In 2015 Google was restructured under a conglomerate named Alphabet With Sergey Brin as President, and Larry Page as CEO.

Google has created and acquired many innovative and useful products such as:

  • Gmail
  • Youtube
  • Google Docs
  • Maps
  • Android OS
  • Analytics
  • Adsense
