  • The world's largest search engine celebrates its birthday

    The world-famous search service began its work in September 1998 after two years of work in the status of a research project. Today, the search giant is celebrating its 21st birthday - in honor of the event, an anniversary “postcard” has already appeared on the search engine’s main page.

    With the release of the new doodle, Google decided to recall what a typical computer looked like in those years when the founders of the company published an article with the complex title “Anatomy of a large-scale hypertext search engine on the Internet”. Then they described a prototype base, which should contain at least 24 million pages.

    “We chose the name Google, because it was in tune with the spelling of the googol number, and looked like a combination of numbers 10100. This name corresponded to our plans for creating large-scale search engines,” said Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

    Today, the Google search base processes billions of queries per day, and from a simple search engine, the company has grown into an influential corporation led by the parent company Alphabet, which is related to a number of industries - from mobile applications to car-to-car driving systems.

    Interestingly, periodically Google celebrates birthdays on different days. In 2018, a festive doodle was published on September 26, in 2004 a significant date fell on September 7, and a year earlier, on September 8. It is believed that this is due to various key events that occurred with the company in the first year of its existence.
