THINGS THEY KNOW TO BE TRUEThey first wrote these ―10 things‖ when Google was just a few years old. Fromtime to time they revisit this list to see if it still holds true. They hope it does andyou can hold them to that. • Focus on the user and all else will follow. Since the beginning, they have focused on providing the best user experience possible. Whether we’re designing a new Internet browser or a new tweak to the look of the homepage, we take great care to ensure that they will ultimately serve you, rather than our own internal goal or bottom line. Our homepage interface is clear and simple, and pages load instantly. • Placement in search results is never sold to anyone, and advertising is not only clearly marked as such, it offers relevant content and is not distracting. • It’s best to do one thing really, really well. They do search. With one of the world’s largest research groups focused exclusively on solving search problems, they know what they do well, and how they could do it better. Through continued iteration on difficult problems, they have been able to solve complex issues and provide continuous improvements to a service that already makes finding information a fast and seamless experience for millions of people. Fast is better than slow. They know your time is valuable, so when you’re seeking an answer on the web you want it right away and they aim to please. They may be the only people in the world who can say our goal is to have people leave our website as quickly as possible. By shaving excess bits and bytes from our pages and increasing the efficiency of our serving environment, they’ve broken our own speed records many times over, so that the average response time on a search result is a fraction of a second. Democracy on the web works. Google search works because it relies on the millions of individuals posting links on websites to help determine which other sites offer content of value. They assess the importance of every web page using more than 200 signals and a variety of techniques, including our patented Page Rank algorithm, which analyzes which sites have been ―voted‖ to be the best sources of information by other pages across the web. You don’t need to be at your desk to need an answer. The world is increasingly mobile: people want access to information wherever they are, whenever they need it. They’re pioneering new technologies and offering new solutions for mobile services that help people all over the globe to do any number of tasks on their phone, from checking email and calendar events to watching videos, not to mention the several different ways to access Google search on a phone.
You can make money without doing evil. Google is a business. The revenue we generate is derived from offering search technology to companies and from the sale of advertising displayed on our site and on other sites across the web. Hundreds of thousands of advertisers worldwide use Ad Words to promote their products; hundreds of thousands of publishers take advantage of our Sense program to deliver ads relevant to their site content. To ensure that we’re ultimately serving all our users (whether they are advertisers or not), we have a set of guiding principles for our advertising programs and practices• There’s always more information out there. Once they’d indexed more of the HTML pages on the Internet than any other search service, our engineers turned their attention to information that was not as readily accessible. Sometimes it was just a matter of integrating new databases into search, such as adding a phone number and address lookup and a business directory. Other efforts required a bit more creativity, like adding the ability to search news archives, patents, academic journals, billions of images and millions of books. And our researchers continue looking into ways to bring the entire world’s information to people seeking answers.• The need for information crosses all borders. Our company was founded in California, but our mission is to facilitate access to information for the entire world, and in every language. To that end, we have offices in more than 60 countries, maintain more than 180 Internet domains, and serve more than half of our results to people living outside the United States. They offer Google’s search interface in more than 130 languages, offer people the ability to restrict results to content written in their own language, and aim to provide the rest of their applications and products in as many languages and accessible formats as possible. You can be serious without a suit. Their founders built Google around the idea that work should be challenging, and the challenge should be fun. They believe that great, creative things are more likely to happen with the right company culture–and that doesn’t just mean lava lamps and rubber balls. Great just isn’t good enough. Through innovation and iteration, they aim to take things that work well and improve upon them in unexpected ways.
