How Well Do You Know Google?

Google has the great mission to organize the world’s information and to make it universally accessible and useful. However, do you know some of the true facts about Google?

  • Google started off its first operations in a rented Garage
  • The name ‘Google’ was an accident. A spelling mistake made by the original founders who thought they were going for ‘Googol’.
  • The prime reason the Google home page is so bare is due to the fact that the founders didn’t know HTML and just wanted a quick interface.
  • One of the biggest leap in search usage came about when Google introduced their much improved spell checker giving birth to the “Did you mean…” feature. This instantly doubled their traffic.
  • There are no restrictions on Googler’s dress code in the office, in which pajama, ugly sweaterand even super hero costume were on the records.
  • Google reckons only 10% of the world’s information is online. It will take Google 300 years to put the entire world’s information online.
This is what it's like inside Google.
