Google Inc. is an American multinational public corporation invested in Internet search, cloud computing, advertising technologies, and search engines. Google began in January 1996 as a research project by Larry Page and Sergey Brin when they were both PhD students at Stanford University in California .

It has been estimated that Google runs over one million servers in data centers around the world,and processes over one billion search requests and about twenty-four petabytes of user-generated data every day .

The company's mission statement from the outset was "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful". In 2006, the company moved to its current headquarters in Mountain View, California.Google's rapid growth since its incorporation has triggered a chain of products, acquisitions, and partnerships beyond the company's core web search engine .

Growth

In March 1999, the company moved its offices to Palo Alto, California, home to several other noted Silicon Valley technology startups .The next year . Google began selling advertisements associated with search keywords. In order to maintain an uncluttered page design and increase speed, advertisements were solely text-based.This model of selling keyword advertising was first pioneered by Goto.com .

Since 2001, Google has acquired many companies.In 2004, Google acquired Keyhole, Inc. The start-up company developed a product called Earth Viewer that gave a 3-D view of the Earth. Google renamed the service to Google Earth in 2005. In early 2006, the company launched Google Video, which allowed users to upload, search, and watch videos from the Internet.On August 5, 2009, Google bought out its first public company, purchasing video software maker On2 Technologies for $106.5 million.

Google's algorithm was changed in March 2011, giving more weight to high-quality content possibly by the use of n-grams to remove spun content.

Products

In addition to its standard web search services, Google has released over the years a number of online productivity tools.Google Docs, another part of Google's productivity suite, allows users to create, edit, and collaborate on documents in an online environment, not dissimilar to Microsoft Word.Google entered the enterprise market in February 2002 with the launch of its Google Search Appliance.Google launched the Mini three years later, which was targeted at smaller organizations.

News for google

Postby BlueWater on Thu Sep 22, 2011 1:22 am

Do you know...

In March 2005, Agence France Presse (AFP) sued Google for $17.5 million, alleging that Google News infringed on its copyright because "Google includes AFP’s photos, stories and news headlines on Google News without permission from Agence France Presse."It was also alleged that Google ignored a cease and desist order, though Google counters that it has opt-out procedures which AFP could have followed but did not. Google now hosts Agence France-Presse news, as well as the Associated Press, Press Association and the Canadian Press. This arrangement started in August 2007.In 2007 Google announced it was paying for Associated Press content displayed in Google News, however the articles are not permanently archived. That arrangement ceased on December 23, 2009 when Google News ceased carrying Associated Press content.

In case, Google was criticized for not including sources that are censored in China. On September 27, 2004, on the official Google Blog, the Google Team wrote: "For users inside the People's Republic of China, we have chosen not to include sources that are inaccessible from within that country."

In 2007, a Belgian court ruled that Google did not have the right to display the lead paragraph from French-language Belgian news sources when Google aggregated news stories.

I have read interesting facts about Google logo. Google’s famously sparse homepage is considered a classic design in the online world. The Google logo, however, wasn’t actually centered on the page until March 31, 2001. As early users will remember, the homepage had a bias to the left-hand track a cell phone side, and even earlier — back in 1998 — Google sported a Yahoo-style exclamation mark.
