A Brief History of Google

The founders of Google, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, met in the Summer of 1995. Both studying at Stanford University, you might be surprised to know that it wasn’t love at first sight. They were both studying for PHDs in computer Science, and both had similar bolshy, I’m-always-right attitudes to life. Their similar personalities clashed at first.

   I thought [Sergey] was pretty obnoxious. He had really strong opinions about things, and I guess I did too.

Despite this, the two of them recognised that there was something between them; a shared genius. Over the next year, they bumped heads and brainstormed. They worked on an idea that Larry originally had to rank web pages based on the back-links it has. That idea, BackRub, worked for more than a year until it clogged up Stanford’s servers… It was obviously having some success.

Eventually, they were forced to move to their own servers, and Google.com was registered as a trademark on 15th September, 1997.

The name Google is a play on “googol”, which is a mathematical term for the number “1” followed by 100 zeroes. This is an apparent reference to their efforts to organise the infinite information that’s available on the World Wide Web.

Fast forward almost 30 years and it’s… now. You already know how to Google it, and you’ve been Googling it for as long as you remember. You might have an Android phone, designed by Google, and you’re probably on Gmail, the world’s most popular email client. In fact, whole businesses are run out of Google these days, with a delectable buffet of programmes and features.
