Google is a search engine that was invented by Sergey Brin and Larry Page who were students of Stanford University in the year 1996 as a research project to find files on the Internet. They decided to name their search engine as google which is inspired by the word googol. The company headquarters is currently located in California.
The google.com domain was registered later on September 15, 1997, and the company was incorporated on the 4th of September, 1998. The picture below shows how google looked like in 1998.
The PageRank technique that sorts search results helps Google stand out from its competition and helps it continue to grow and be the topmost search engine. Apart from being the top search engine on the internet, Google also provides many other services like google maps and google local, which provides more relevant search results.
