The Formation Google occurred in March 1995 by Larry page and Ph.D student Sergey Brin as a research project at the Stanford University. They got an idea to start a search engine. As a part of the research project Larry had been searching for the mathematical properties and structure of the World Wide Web. They wanted to sell Google as a project but nobody turned up. Google is owned by both Larry Page and Sergey Brin with almost fourteen percent of the market share and fifty six percent of the controlling super voting stock having the voting powers and rights. Google was formed and incorporated by them on 4th September, 1998 as a privately held company. Brin and Page originally named their research project “Back rub”, but later they changed the name to Google. Finally, Google’s domain name was registered on 15th September, 1997.
In May year 2011, for the first time the huge number of visitors visiting Google in a month exceeded 1 billion. From May 2010 i.e. 931 million, it increased 8.4 percent i.e. more than one billion visitors. In 2013 (January), Google made an announcement that it had earned the annual revenue of US dollars fifty billion for the year 2012. Their annual revenue in 2011 was just US dollars thirty eight billion. So, this huge revenue figure made Google reach to the top. Since 2001 till 2014, Google has acquired several companies.
Further, in 1999, the company moved its head office to California which was the most famous area for the technology start ups with just eight employees (the figure contrasting to Google’s present employees). In 2001, a patent for the Page rank mechanism was received by Google. The patent lists Page as the official inventor of Google. In 2013, Google announced the formation of a new company known as Calico. In September 2013, it is reported that Google operates more than seventy offices in almost more than fifty countries. On 27th September, 2013, Google celebrated its fifteenth year anniversary.
Google has lead to the development of the mobile operating system Android, a web browser named Chrome book.
