Who invented Google?

The most popular search engine was invented by Sergey Brin and Larry Page in September, 1998. They named it Google, after Googol which means number 1 followed by 100 zeros. The name itself said about the amount of information that the search engine stored. It was in 1995 that Sergey Brin, a Soviet born computer scientist and Larry Page, an American computer scientist met at Stanford University as computer science graduates. By January’ 96 both started writing a program on a search engine Backrub which had the quality of back link analysis. After the success of this joint venture, they began their work at Google. They started with making of a server using obsolete, cheap and used PC’s. They spent all their money, took credits and looked for cheap hardware. They failed in finding finance to get Google licensed.

After a lot of improvement, when the demo for the same was given to Andy Bechtolsheim, the co founder of Sun Microsystems, he at once wrote a cheque for $ 1,00,000. In the same year Google opened its office in Menlo Park, California and Google.com was answering 10,000 queries everyday. In 2000 Google was released in ten more languages.

Amazing and interesting facts about Google say that people all round the globe send search requests to Google everyday, it got its name by spelling mistake from Googol to Google, it has the largest network of translators in the world, the homepage of Google is available in 88 languages and Google shares 33% of global English- language searches.
