10 things you may not know about Google

When Larry Page and Sergey Brin started a research project at Stanford University, anyone didn’t think it would one day become tech-Giant Google. Can you remember the life before Google came? What would you do then, when all of a sudden, you needed to find information about something?

No matter what you're looking for - maybe the correct spelling of a word, the address of a restaurant, the name of a particular store, or the name of a hillside lake, maybe now you Google it.

Google answers an average of 40,000 searches per second - three and a half billion searches per day (Forbes estimates).

In the midst of all this, the most popular search engine in the world has become more than just any search engine. It is an advertising medium, a business model and a relentless collector of personal information.

That's right, every time we do a Google search, Google finds out a little bit about our personal likes and dislikes and habits - but how much do you know about Google?

Here is some information about Google, which may surprise you.

1. Google’s name originates from spelling mistakes?

 You may want to know what the name Google means. In fact, it makes no sense.

The name Google actually comes from a misspelling of the mathematical calculation googol - which is one hundred zeros after 1.

There are many stories now that an engineer or student wrote this misspelling instead of the real name. That wrong name comes in front of the whole world.

2. 'Backrub'

Google's founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin gave the company its first name, Backrub.

The method by which a website finds another website and determines the ranking on the webpage based on their past links is called backrub.

3. Not everything is business

Everything from Google is not business. There are a lot of interesting things out there. For example, you can type the word "askew" in Google.

4. Google and goat

Google has always said it supports green initiatives. One of these is lawn mowing by goats.

The lawn grass at Google's headquarters in California has to be trimmed regularly. So if you ever go there, you will see about 200 goats roaming around and eating grass and keeping the lawn grass in order.

5. Growing business

Gmail, Google Maps, Google Drive, Google Chrome ... Google has been owning one company almost every week since 2010. You may not notice, but there are seventy more companies like Android, YouTube, Voice, AdSense - Google.

6. Doodle

Arts created specifically for special occasions or personalities floats in the page of Google. The first Google Doodle was launched on August 30, 1997, with the message out of the office. When Larry and Sergey went to Nevada for a festival, the idea first came up. Doodles have become a Google tradition ever since.

7. Opportunity for others, but not for Google

In 1999, Larry and Sergei tried to sell Google for 1 million ..... but there were no customers to buy it. Even after lowering the price, no customer matched. Google now has a net worth of 300 billion. Perhaps some may now regret that opportunity.

8. Google's norm

One of Google's basic ideals is "Never be evil." But whether this company is still in that ideal, that decision is yours.

9. Food is a very important thing

According to Forbes, Google's father, Sergey Brin, initially decided that Google's office would never be more than 60 meters away from where food was received. Rumor has it that the company's most popular dish at the time was 'Swedish fish', a chewy dessert. But now Google has a variety of meats and good quality coffee for its people.

10. Employees can bring their own dog to Google's office

Everyone who works at Google, even newcomers, can bring their own dog with them. But it has to prove that they are trained in the type of office, where they will not mess around.
