© World

‎Her ‎‎21st birthday ‎‎celebrates today the biggest search engine and the most manageable tool of the Internet, Google, and-of course-honors the day with a‎‎ ‎‎Doodle‎‎.‎

‎Google‎‎ ‎‎started in January 1996 as a research project by Larry Paige and Sergei Breen when they both did their PhD at Stanford University, California‎‎.‎

‎While ‎‎conventional search engines ranked their results by counting how many times the search terms appeared on the page‎‎, they both ‎‎created a better system that analyzed the relationships between web pages‎‎. They named the ‎‎new technology‎‎ ‎‎”‎‎PageRank‎‎”‎‎, which defined ‎‎the relevance of a website by the number and significance of the pages leading back to it‎‎.‎

They named ‎‎their search engine ‎‎ ‎‎ ‎‎Google‎‎. The word ‎‎came from an anagram of the word ‎‎”googol”‎‎, the mathematical term introduced by Milton Sirota for the number 10 ^ 100 Written: ‎‎”1 followed by 100 zeros”‎‎.‎

‎By doing so, Google‎‎ wishes to ‎‎indicate the company’s mission to organise the vast number of Internet Information‎‎.‎

‎Market surveys showed that in april 2007, Google Inc. took over as the world’s most famous company, thus relocating Microsoft Corp‎‎.‎

‎The ‎‎rapid growth of the business since its founding was caused by a chain of products, mergers and collaborations beyond Google’s search engine‎‎. The company is ‎‎leading the development of the operating system for Android mobile devices and is moving more and more in telecommunication hardware‎‎. ‎
