Larry Page began the project as his doctoral thesis. The idea was to crawl and rank search results based loosely on the idea of “citation,” which is mainly an academic currency.
He worked on the project for several years. As the project progressed it was renamed Google, and the algorithm it employed was named PageRank. Google is a name that comes as a play on the word “googol,” which is a number represented by a one followed by a hundred zeros.
The Web domain www.google.com was registered in 1997, but officially opened for business in September of 1998.
Generally, Google uses the 1998 official business launch date to calculate their age in years.
In recent years, the Google birthday was generally celebrated on September 27th.
Today is my birthday as well, although I’m a few years older than 20. I’m shown here in a picture with my mom when I was a little over a year old. I plan to celebrate by googling some interesting facts and eating some yummy cake.
