I'll glom some points from the previous Google reviews to avoid repeating the same thing all over again.
Google? Spell it?
As everyone of us might know, Google is a traditional, most-used, most-preferred, leading and the best Internet search engine.
Google is a play on the word googol. It refers to the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. Google's use of the term reflects the company's mission to organize the immense, seemingly infinite amount of information available on the web.
Google, Initially started by Sergey Brin & Larry Page, Stanford graduate in late 1990s. The search engine, whose name has now been popularized as a verb, scours content from more than 8 billion Web sites now. And Legend was born...
An Internet company finally gets it really-really right without compromising its dorm-room culture and Grateful Dead chef. Google is one of only three or four companies that have figured out how to make piles of cash from the Internet. And the company is unapologetic about its dot com corporate culture.
Google first electrified the online world by creating the Web's best search engine. The company's lightning-fast and mostly accurate search results put Google at the front of the search engine race - no small feat considering that search is the second-most common activity on the Internet, right below email use. Internet users now conduct more than 200 million searches per day on Google.
Google figured out a way to cash in on its widespread use - the company monetized search. A couple years ago, Google started to place paid ads alongside the free search results with its AdSense (Affiliate) & AdWords (Advertiser) Program. Since then, Google AdWords program has attracted 175,000 advertisers, many people quit their full-time job having faith in Adsense Program.
And today, Google is the 2nd largest Cost Per Click Solution Provider after Overture (Yahoo).
- Web, News, Images, Video & Map (Beta), Gmail, Orkut and a few more services available
- 8+ Billion Webpages Indexed
- 200 million (approx) searches performed each day
- Greatest Result Relevancy compared to Yahoo and MSN
- Blazingly Fast speed
- Too much useless nonsense indexed compared to Yahoo & MSN. (Negative)
- PageRank Technology works like a charm. Usually, a website's importance is determined by the Pagerank.
As a denouement, I'd honestly want to include that although Google is still the indisputable leader, but their recent business strategies makes me avoid them. However, overall, Google is a blessing to us for getting an answer instantly to almost anything...
...from Software to innerware, google has it all! ;)
