  12. 12. Google The World’s Most Used Search Engine By: FaithWay back when, there were no computers, no Internet, no Google. Yeah, we’re all trying to forget thosetimes. Throughout the 21st century, Google has been very successful, developed new applications andtechnology, and now has a very good reputation for being a great place to work. I hope you enjoy yourtour of Google’s head. Well, headquarters anyway.When Larry Page and Sergey Brin came up with Google, I bet it was no more than a dream to take overthe search engine industry. But, in 2007, that’s exactly what Google did. Google achieved the greathonor of being the most used search engine on the web. As Larry Page said it, “The perfect searchengine would understand exactly what you mean and give you exactly what you want.” But, how doesGoogle do it? Well, it started with a ton of borrowed money and free searches. It’s definitely nice to beable to just say “Google it” when someone asks you to spell super-kala-fraga-listic-expi-ala-docious(Which, by the way, is spelled wrong here. You’ll have to Google how it’s spelled!), or why George Bushnamed his son George W, and not have to pay to search for it. How does Google ofter free searches?It’s through something called AdWords. AdWords is a program that connects advertisements thatdirectly relate to your Google search. As a result, advertisers pay Google millions, advertisers makemillions from our business, Google makes millions, we do millions of searches for free, and millions ofpeople are happy. :)Google is one of the BEST places to work. It’s definitely succeeded in changing the work world. Googlebelieves you can be “serious without a suit,” “work should be challenging, and that challenge should befun,” and “do no evil and change the world for the better.” These are some of Google’s many missionstatements. The zen-like workspace is open, colorful, and fun. “Real fun?” you ask. Chess. They havechess set up. So, yes, real fun. Google somehow managed to make it to the top of Fortune Magazine’s“Top 100 Places to work” list. Go Google!
  13. 13. “Whats your email?" "Go Google it""Where do you live?" "Go Google it""Do you eat eggplant?" "Go Google it"Google has the answer to almost anything, and can do a whole lot. But, does Googlecome up with a result for everything, though? No. Have you ever Googled “]”? “Yoursearch - ] - did not match any documents.” While nothing can do everything, Googlesure does come close. From Alerts to Web Search Features, Google has a ton of apps.They even have they’re own phone technology! Have you ever heard of Android? Well,we can all thank Google for that. And YouTube? Run by Google. They’re even workingon a new TV that can hook you up to the full Internet, and it will be the first of its kind.Gmail, News, Sketch-Up, Videos, Images, um, you get the picture. Or, more, the bigpicture. Sergey Brin says, “Google actually relies on our users to help with ourmarketing. We have a very high percentage of our users who often tell others about oursearch engine.” In English (and not marketing talk), random people of the world, keeptalking!Over all, I think Google has done pretty well. I mean, if over 4,000,000,000 (four billion)web pages and at least that many users falls into the pretty good category. Google hasbeen really successful, is changing the way people work (and think of work), and has aton of apps. All the facts in this paper are true... Just GOOGLE It!!!!
