My company project is on Google. The worlds most used and recognized search engines. Google founders are Larry Page and Sergey Brin two Stanford University students, in 1996 they built a search engine called BackRub, and at the time it used links to determine the importance of webpages. BackRub later turned into Google, although BackRub started in 1996 Google was registered as a domain on September 15th, 1997 and became incorporated on September 4th, 1998. Larry Page was actually a University of Michigan grad that was considering Stanford, and Sergey was his assigned tour guide. Google comes from the word “googol” which is a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. This was the name used to show Larry and Sergey’s mission to organize an infinite amount of information on the web. Google was based in Susan Wojcicki’s garage, and Google’s official first employ was Craig Silverstein. It’s main headquarters, better know as Googolplex is now located in Mountain View, California since 2004. Google today is located in more than forty countries around the world with more than seventy offices total. Larry Page was Google’s original CEO until 2001, but in April 2011 took up the title again, Eric Schmidt is the executive chairman today, and Andy Bechtolsheim was the first investor with a $100,000 check to Google before it was even considered a company.
The company has been up and running now for fifteen years now. And according to their website their mission statement is, “To organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” I feel that their mission statement is quite clear and being a daily Google user I feel that they have
successfully reached their mission. The internet has become something that the world depends a great deal on, and Google is a key part of the internet I feel like. Google allows users to explore the web without having to know the exact websites and allows them the get the best possible information for their search within seconds. I feel that their mission statement is clear and well reached due to the amount of information that is on the web but they make it easy and organized for any level of computer users. Due to the fact that they are located in over forty countries, which all speak different languages and have different interests in information I find it very impressive of how fast and accurate searches are. Anyone that uses Google I think would agree with their mission statement and as well say how impressive Google is.
Google isn’t just the worlds largest search engine it also has a wide range of products. These products are under eight headings, which include web, mobile, media, geo, specialized searches, home and office, social, and innovation. Some of the major products that come from these headings include, Google Chrome, YouTube, Google Play, Picasa, Google Maps, Google Earth, Blog Search, Google Drive, Gmail, Google+, Blogger, Fusion...
