Almost everyone you meet – be it a celebrity or a politician or your local grocer – has a place on the web. But how and why did this happen in the first place? The beginnings of research and technology that led to the Internet actually began over half a century ago, but a recognizable form to today’s users wasn’t developed until the 1970s and 1980s. The first version of the Internet to connect internationally was developed in 1974 when the United States connected to Norway. Since then, the Internet has certainly evolved, and it has had a snow- ball kind of effect – the technology seems to developing faster and faster, gathering both momentum and speed. The Internet changed the world simply because it was the first method of instant communication globally. Today, two of the websites that reign supreme are Google and Yahoo!, which are both search engine services that expanded to include other services (such as email, video sharing, and so forth) as well. It makes sense that these search engine services are the most popular websites – without them, users can’t find the information they need online. There are trillions upon trillions of documents, pictures, videos, and other files uploaded from around the world to help people connect to one another. Google and Yahoo! are gateways to the Internet so to speak, and without them, your user experience would be highly limited. A website designer today has to not only make a pretty site, but also one that attracts search engines. www.webedesigner.com Web E Designer LLC
