How did Google's journey begin?

Google is the most popular search engine in the world. But how did this Google journey begin? Who came up with the idea to launch something?

How did Google's journey begin?

It was started by two students from Stanford University in California, USA - who were doing their PhD at the time. Their names are Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

Google was created by these two - which is now one of the most valuable companies in the world.

how her two friends Larry and Sergey came up with the idea of ​​a new type of search engine in the early days of the Internet.
This is the episode of witnessing history.

Revolutionary change

That was in the mid-1990s. Two postgraduate students at Stanford came up with the idea - which later revolutionized the world of the Internet.

Sergei Brin said, "We always thought that such an initiative had business potential. But at that time our idea was to create a very good search engine, and reach as many people as possible."

In the words of Larry Page, "Our mission was to streamline the world's information, where people from all over the world could enter, everyone would benefit. I thought it would be a great thing for the whole world."

At the time, Page and Brin were doing their PhD at Stanford with another student - Tamara Manjanar.

Tamar said, "Larry smiled a lot. He was very intelligent, but funny. And Sergei was a little serious. But there was a feeling between the two of them - 'We want to do it the way we do'."

"It may have been a part of their personality and that's why Google has become such a different place."

In Silicon Valley then the vibrancy of creation

Larry Page was born in Michigan. And Sergei Brin was born in Russia.

However, both parents were academics and both came to Stanford to pursue a PhD in computer science.

They first met in 1995. At that time, Silicon Valley in California was a place of great potential.

"Everywhere you look today, the tide of protectionist sentiment is flowing. Everywhere you look today, the tide of protectionist sentiment is flowing. Everybody's looking forward to it."

"So every week I had to make a new promise in my mind that under no circumstances should I drop out of grad school,"

"Everywhere you look today, the tide of protectionist sentiment is flowing. It's almost like an explosion. One-fourth of all graduate students are doing start-ups."

"Faculties also had start-ups at the time. So most of the Stanford professors then became multi-millionaires because of their previous start-up income."

"It was a wonderful place for a computer scientist."

They could easily get into an argument '

Tamara worked in the same office with Larry Page and three others at Stanford.

"When you meet Larry, you have to meet Sergei - because they always met together. But even then, their friendship was not straightforward."

Both later said that when they first met, they did not like each other at all.

"It would have been very easy for them to argue," said Tamara.

In 1996, Page and Brin launched a thesis project - How to Improve the Search for Different Pages on the Internet.

'Search engines say there was almost nothing then'

Now it’s hard to imagine, but in the early days of the internet the process of finding something was very chaotic and very troublesome.

Because in those days there was no such thing as search engine.

In Tamara's words, "People today may not understand what the Internet was like then. In fact, there was literally no such thing as search. If you wanted to get something, you had to find something from a hand-drawn index."

"The world of the internet was so small back then that when someone clicked on my webpage I kept logging in, what a thrill - someone clicked on my webpage!"

Page and Brin realize that when someone clicks on a webpage, it's not just about being relevant, it's also about whether it's valuable to previous users.

"Like when you're searching for 'how to make chocolate cake, you're not just looking for a page that has the word chocolate cake in it, you want that page - so that other people have judged how to make the best chocolate cake.'

Page Ranking , Algorithm - A New Idea

It's called page ranking and it was a new idea.

Page and Brin were inspired by the way others read and evaluated academic articles. Because they knew it from the work of their parents.

And that's why they use a complex kind of mathematics - called an algorithm.

"An algorithm is a way to tell a computer exactly what works and how it works."

"The great idea behind PageRank is that you're using the structure of the web. This means that the more people are attracted to your page, the stronger, more credible and prominent your page will become."

"The advantage of a backlink structure is being taken advantage of here to determine exactly what is important - the Internet across a wide range of networks. Based on this, the pager ranking algorithm is working."

This algorithm was used in a search engine called Backrab - it was launched by Page and Brin in 1998.

Tamara was very impressed with the way it works.

"I started using BackRub long ago. Because it was obviously better than the others for internet search."

Forgot spelling 'Google' became 'Google'

Backrab was so popular at the time that Stanford's internet often crashed, unable to cope with the pressure.

It was at this point that its two founders, Larry and Sergei, thought the company needed a new name.

That's why everyone sat in a 'brainstorming' meeting to hear the ideas of different people. That meeting has now become a legend in the information technology age.

That's where the Google name is suggested.

That name is written on the white board of Stanford University.

It was Googol - a mathematical word - meaning 100 zeros on the back of 1.

But there was a spelling mistake - maybe unintentionally, or who knows - maybe intentionally.

Tamara said, "It was their usual long meeting. I know - because the next day I came and saw, too, that they had mistyped the spelling."

"Because the word is actually googol - 'G double and G and L' - which means a mathematical number, not a hundred zeros 'G double and G L E' on the back of one. But that's what survived."

The Google.com domain name was registered on September 15, 1997.

We didn't go to see Burning Man '

Shortly afterwards, the first Google Doodle came out - a change in the Google logo that reminds us of a particular person, event or day.

The first doodle was of a burning man - meaning Page and Brin went on a trip to the Nevada 'Burning Man' festival.

"Google has done a lot of things that haven't been done in the corporate world. Like this Google doodle."

"The first doodle had a picture of a man on fire - which meant letting everyone know they weren't here, they'd been somewhere outside Stanford."

The following year, Page and Brin left the Stamford University campus. They raised ১০ 1 million with the help of friends, family, and a few investors, and started their own company.

Its office was in the garage of a friend.

google is now the most popular search engine in the world

The search engine was very easy to use. All you have to do is type a word or two into their interface. The size of their company began to grow exponentially.

"How well they're doing - it was understandable when they went to a party and saw that they were having a party with a lot more space than before. They had to say, 'Oh, you see, you've got a lot of big offices.'"

In August 2004, Google moved to its new headquarters in California. Whose name is Googleplex.

That same year the company was listed on the stock market.

‘ Google ’ of that misspelling is now a noun and a verb

Google has become so much a part of our lives that it has become a noun and a verb.

They are making hundreds of billions of dollars from advertising. They have been accused of tax evasion, monopoly power in the market, and censorship in China.

Tamara Manjanar was asked if her two friends from university life were able to stick to their early principles.

"Their ideal was that they should not become something evil. That's exactly what they believed. They worked to make the world more livable. I wanted to. "

Tamara is now a professor at the University of British Columbia. Does he regret now that he didn't get involved with Google at the time, maybe he would have become a billionaire?

"I thought, but I couldn't figure out how I wanted to work. Other than that, my thinking was different than theirs."

"I was thinking of finishing my PhD at the time. I thought - no, no, I wouldn't have finished my PhD if I had joined a start-up."
