  • Now that someone said who, I will say why. They created it because search engines utilize certain formulas or algorithms to retrieve the information that appears. When you search something, a lot of work is happening to order what is most relevant. IN fact, the search engine "spiders" "crawl" every page for relevant keyword content, and there is a whole field behind optimizing your website. Google revolutionized how this was done. And no one knows HOW exactly these algorithms work.. It's all kept a secret by the search engine so that websites can't abuse the system for higher rankings.
  • 1) "Google began in January 1996, as a research project by Larry Page, who was soon joined by Sergey Brin, two Ph.D. students at Stanford University, California. They hypothesized that a search engine that analyzed the relationships between websites would produce better ranking of results than existing techniques, which ranked results according to the number of times the search term appeared on a page. Their search engine was originally nicknamed "BackRub" because the system checked backlinks to estimate a site's importance. A small search engine called Rankdex was already exploring a similar strategy. Convinced that the pages with the most links to them from other highly relevant web pages must be the most relevant pages associated with the search, Page and Brin tested their thesis as part of their studies, and laid the foundation for their search engine. Originally, the search engine used the Stanford University website with the domain The domain was registered on September 15, 1997, and the company was incorporated as Google Inc. on September 7, 1998 at a friend's garage in Menlo Park, California." Source and further information: 2) "Bill Gross, the man who created Google" "There’s an interesting interview on John Battelle’s blog with Bill Gross of Idealab, the guy who created (among many other things) a pay-per-click, search-based advertising company called GoTo, which became Overture, which was then bought by Yahoo. In fact, although John doesn’t mention this in the lead-up to the interview, without Bill Gross and GoTo there might never have been a Google — or at least not the $120-billion behemoth that controls over half the online advertising market. According to someone who spoke to one of the VCs that invested in Google in the early days, the company had no clue what it was going to do to generate money, until it decided to “borrow” the pay-per-click search-related ad model from Overture. Fast forward a few years and presto: Larry and Sergey are billionaires, and Bill is… well, still working, and apparently not having the best time financially, according to rumours. Maybe Google could throw him a bone — or at least let him come by and help himself from the free candy room." Source and further information:
  • Straight from the horse's mouth: Co-founders Larry Page, president of Products, and Sergey Brin, president of Technology, brought Google to life in September 1998.
  • Why don't you Google it...
  • Jesus?
  • Larry Page and Sergey Brin started it as a research project when they were getting their phd's at Stanford. Also as an FYI, they named is Google after the word googol (10`100, the number represented by a 1 followed by one hundred zeros) which was commonly misspelled.
