Larry, 22, a U Michigan grad, is considering the school; Sergey, 21, is assigned to show him around. 1996: Larry and Sergey begin collaborating on a search engine called BackRub. BackRub operates on Stanford servers for more than a year—eventually taking up too much bandwidth. is registered as a domain on September 15. The name—a play on the word "googol," a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros—reflects Larry and Sergey's mission to organize a seemingly infinite amount of information on the web 1998: April Larry launches a monthly "Google Friends Newsletter" to inform fans about company news. (We've since shut down Google Friends Newsletter in favor of blogs, Google+ and other methods of sharing news.) August Sun co-founder Andy Bechtolsheim writes a check for $100,000 to an entity that doesn't exist yet—a company called Google Inc. Before heading to the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert, Larry and Sergey incorporate the iconic Man into the logo to keep people informed about where the Google crew would be for a few days—our first doodle. September On September 4, Google files for incorporation in California. Larry and Sergey open a bank account in the newly-established company's name and deposit Andy Bechtolsheim's check. Google sets up workspace in Susan Wojcicki's garage on Santa Margarita Ave., Menlo Park, Calif. Larry and Sergey hire their first employee.

  • 24 CHAPTER-6 WORKS OF GOOGLE Google works on web spider now called a googlebot. The spider consists of crawler and indexer. Crawler crawls the WebPages on the internet and also saves the links mentioned on the webpage and crawl them too. As crawler crawls a particular pages it gets indexed or cached in the Google database by indexer. Explanation in Steps 1. Google search engine use software called bots or spider to scour the web 2. These bots and spider find new websites and web pages by following links on the web page. 3. Once Google search engine find a web page, they "read" the text-based content and the search engine stores this data into a huge library called an index. 4. When we search something on Google the search engine reaches into its gigantic index and before displaying a list if web pages it uses its Algorithm to calculate which ones best match your search query then it eventually presents you with search results that are related to your query which leads you to the website you were looking for!
  • 26 Chapter-7 EARNING OF GOOGLE There are various possible ways through which Google generate its income. The following are: Google Search Engine Gmail YouTube Orkut Google Ad sense Google Ad words Blogger Google Maps Google Earth Google News Google Analytics Android (operating system) 1. Ad Words It is the Google main source of revenue. Ad words basically deals with advertising. Reach people when they are actively looking information about your products and services online, and send targeted visitors directly to what you are offering. With Ad words it cost-per-click pricing. It’s easy to control costs- and you only pay when people click on your ad 2. Ad Sense It is basically use for web publishers. Earn more revenue from your website, while provide visitors with a more rewarding online experience. Google Ad Sense automatically delivers text and image ads that are precisely targeted to site and site content -ads so well-matched. In fact, the readers will actually find them useful. And when you add Google web search to the site, ad sense delivers targeted ads to the search result pages too. With ad sense you earn more ad revenue with minimal efforts - and no additional cost. 3. Page Rank Developed by Larry page and Sergey brin at the University of Stanford in 1997 Link analysis algorithm, measuring the relative importance of a website
  • 27 "Page rank is a vote, by all the other web pages on the internet, about how important a web page is. A link to a web page counts as a vote of support. If there are no incoming links to a web page then there is no support." Academic citation literature is applied to calculate page rank PR(A)= (1-d) + d(PR(t1)/C(t1) + ... + PR(tn)/C(tn)) in this equation't1-tn' are pages linking to page A, 'c' is the number of outbund links that a page has and 'd' is a damping factor , usually set to 0.85. 4. Sponsored Results These are the results that appear on the right hand corner of our screens after we execute a search on Google. Websites that appear on the Sponsored Results tab have an agreement with Google where they pay Google for showing their website on searches for specific websites. For example, if we are searching for a Samsung mobile phone, we see websites selling Samsung mobile phones in the Sponsored links section. Google earns some money when we click on any of these links. The question is how much money does Google earn from this? Google Ad words allow all potential advertisers to put up their adverts, specifying the keywords. After assessing the advert, Google will quote a price for your advert. 5. Google mobile search this can be explain with the help of an example A) search the web - at the supermarket and need to find the ingredients for Thai curry? just query "Thai curry ingredients" on your phone's web browser to search through more than 8 billion pages for the recipe that will wow the taste buds. B) search images - is that an oak tree or an ash tree ? search more than 2 billion images and get the one you need on your phone with Google image search.
  • 28 C) search the mobile web - access the mobile web which s made up of site that are specifically designed to fit your phone screen. 6. Google Image search Google also shows sponsored results for images under Sponsored Links above the rest of the results. These are also a means to earn a lot of money for Google. 7. Gmail When we sign in to our mail accounts on Gmail which is probably the most popular at this point in time, we are shown sponsored links on our accounts. And these links are always relevant to the keywords of the mails that we receive. 8. Orkut Google displays text and banner ads (Google Ad sense) on Orkut profiles and pages. 9. Android Google makes money (and justifies giving away the OS) by licensing the Google Apps that come on most Android phones (but not all). Apps like Gmail, the Android Market, Google Search, and others come in something called GAPPS. The Market is really where Google is interested. Sure, the other GAPPS add value to the phone (hence why carriers license their inclusion on Android-powered phones), but Google is making money with every app sold through the Market. Even free apps make Google money. Developers have to pay to have an account to list their apps under. Even ad-sponsored apps are likely using Google Mobile Ads, so Google’s getting revenue from that source as well. 10. YouTube Google displays text and banner ads (Google Ad sense) on youtube videos and sidebar of YouTube pages
  • 29 CHAPTER- 8 SUCCESS AND WEAKPOINT OF GOOGLE The following are the point of Success of Google: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. we cannot deny it Google is a great success ―Google’s search engine has always had strong global appeal,‖ Easy service, easy to manage American impact Google dependence phenomenon (Gmail, Blogger, picasa, youtube...

I counted openings in 57 worldwide locations, not including those in the United States.
  • 31 Conclusion Google is a great international marketing company. However there are some reserves regarding the strategy it adopts towards Asia. ―We will take a long term view to win in China . The Chinese have 5,000 years of history. Google has 5,000 years of patience in china Althought google has made some progess in terms of market share
