World’s most used search engine completes its 23 years in full glory. Google has seen so many phases in its life span and failure was never the one.
SILICON VALLEY, USA – Google’s motto is “Our mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”. While looking at now it is safe to say that they have provided to all. Just imagine a day without using Google or its attributes. It is just impossible now to operate without using this search engine.
World is shrunken in google and its universe. So on 23rd Birthday of Google Inc, we pay our heartiest congratulations to the mighty engine of all time. Google congratulated itself with a two tier chocolate cake with letter L as a candle in it.
The story behind the search engine is quite interesting. In 1996, Sergey Brin, a graduate student at Stanford University, met Larry Page, who was considering Stanford for graduate school at the time, around campus. In just one year, two Google co-founders built a search engine together in their dorm rooms and developed their first prototype. This is how Google Inc. was born in 1988.
Actually the original date of origin is September 4, 1988. For around 4 years they celebrated its birthday on this date. But when the engine started getting fame and popularity, founders decided to celebrate it in a unique way. In 2002 they pushed it to September 27 because this was the day when there was maximum number of searches done in one day. From that day till now, Google celebrates its birthday on September 27th.
