In the last 25 years, Google has become the uncrowned king of the internet world. The name of Google is on the lips of every child today. It is known as the world’s largest search engine. But do you know that this search engine was not named Google, rather it was found by mistake. On Google’s 25th birthday, let us tell you an interesting story about the name of Google.
How did Google get its name?
Actually, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, two students doing PhD at Stanford University of America, together created this search engine. Both of them started Google on 4 September 1998. When the search engine was created, it was named BackRub. But when it came to registering the company, both of them decided that they would register the company with the name GOOGOL.
GOOGOL is a term of mathematics which means 1 and 00 i.e. 100. But due to a mistake in spelling while registering, its name became Google instead of GOOGOL. It was very easy to speak and write Google words. That’s why it reached people’s lips very easily. In today’s time, Google is so popular that even if people talk about searching something on the Internet, they say just do Google.
Other services of Google
Google is not only known as a search engine, but it also provides many other services. Today Google in the form of Gmail is one of the largest mailing services in the world. Apart from this, YouTube is the world’s largest video streaming platform, it is also a part of Google.
Google Map, Google Drive and even the Android OS used to run smartphones also belongs to Google. The company is also progressing rapidly in the Artificial Intelligence sector. The tech firm has launched Google Bard AI, which is an artificial intelligence based chatbot service. America’s giant tech company Alphabet is the owner of Google.
It started on 4th September then why is the birthday on 27th September?
Google was started on 4 September 1998, but its birthday is celebrated every year on 27 September. There is a reason behind this also. In fact, for a few years in the initial period, this company used to celebrate its birthday only on 4th September.
But later the company decided to celebrate the anniversary on September 27 to commemorate the addition of the record search page on the search engine. Since then, Google’s official birthday is celebrated every year on 27 September.
