Here’s a fact that everyone owning a piece of technology is aware of: Google is your number one search engine. Not only is it a portal to access everything you’d like to know, but it also acts as an amazing backup when your parents come to check up on you (don’t give me that look, we know that whenever you noce anyone else looking at the screen over your shoulder, you change tabs to Google.com and just stare at it unl they leave). However, here are some, rather interesng facts about Google that you may not know.
When you perform a Google search, the machine checks the Google index to determine the relevant search results to be displayed to you. The search engine considers 200 factors before displaying you the best results for your query. Google uses a special algorithm called the Googlebot to generate search results.
Somemes, the results are rather surprising.
When Google was founded in September 1998, it served around ten thousand search queries per day. Currently, there are more than 2 million Google searches per second.
Google owns a cluster of domains such as, Google.com, Gogle.com and Googlr .com which directs to Google.com, which is completely reasonable. However, Google also owns 466453.com. If you take a look at your telephone keypad, you will noce that the numbers match up to the leers as so:
4 — GHI,
6 — MNO,
6 — MNO,
4 — GHI,
5 — JKL.
3 — DEF,
thus making 466453 as Google. So, if on typing any of these knowingly or unknowingly, it doesn’t take you to some strange page. Instead, you’ll land up on Google.com only.
When Google was founded in September 1998, it served ten thousand search queries per day. Currently, there are more than 2 million Google searches per second. The search engine finds a trillion unique URL’s on the web. Crawls many billion sites a day and processes numerous searches every month.
Google takes on the best projects that could change the world for millions of people. In 2012, Google introduced the Cherokee language in Gmail, which is the first Nave American Tribal language added to its list. As part of this effort, Google also added Cherokee to its recently launched virtual keyboards for Gmail.
On August 30, 1998 the concept of the Google Doodle was formed when company co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin placed a simple sck-figure drawing behind the second “o” in the word “Google”. To nofy the Google users that the founders were “out of office” at the Burning Man fesval in the Nevada desert they made the first Google logo art.
Google’s search index is so huge (100 million gigabytes) in size that it would require about 100,000 one-terabyte personal drives to store the same amount of data.
The only company with a clear goal to reduce the amount of me people spend on its site might be Google. Google engineers are encouraged to spend about 20 percent of their work on projects that they have interest.
