For those that didn’t know

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.[25]

While conventional search engines ranked results by counting how many times the search terms appeared on the page, the two theorized about a better system that analyzed the relationships between websites.[26] They called this new technology PageRank, where a website’s relevance was determined by the number of pages, and the importance of those pages, that linked back to the original site.[27][28]

A small search engine called “RankDex” from IDD Information Services designed by Robin Li was, since 1996, already exploring a similar strategy for site-scoring and page ranking.[29] The technology in RankDex would be patented[30] and used later when Li founded Baidu in China.[31][32]

Page and Brin originally nicknamed their new search engine “BackRub“, because the system checked backlinks to estimate the importance of a site.[33][34][35]

Eventually, they changed the name to Google, originating from a misspelling of the word “googol“,[36][37] the number one followed by one hundred zeros, which was picked to signify that the search engine wants to provide large quantities of information for people.[38] Originally, Google ran under the Stanford University website, with the domains google.stanford.edu and z.stanford.edu.[39][40]

The domain name for Google was registered on September 15, 1997,[41] and the company was incorporated on September 4, 1998. It was based in a friend’s (Susan Wojcicki[25]) garage in Menlo Park, California. Craig Silverstein, a fellow PhD student at Stanford, was hired as the first employee.[25][42][43]

In May 2011, the number of monthly unique visitors to Google surpassed 1 billion for the first time, an 8.4 percent increase from May 2010 (931 million).[44]
