Google - Definition

Google is the world's most popular search engine. It began as a search project in 1996 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who were two Ph.D. students at Stanford University. They developed a search engine algorithm that ranked Web pages, not just by content and keywords, but by how many other Web pages linked to each page. This strategy produced more useful results than other search engines, and led to a rapid increase in Google's Web search market share. This ranking algorithm was later named "PageRank" and was patented in 2001. In only a short time, Google became the number one search engine. Their mission statement is "To Organize The World's Information And Make It Universally Accessible And Useful".
