History of Google
From its beginnings in 1997 Google creators Larry Page and Sergey Brin have built and developed the world’s number one search engine. Google’s growth since the 1990’s has gone from strength to strength with developments such as Google’s doodles, Google AdWords, Google Toolbar, Google News, Google Earth to name but a few!
Over the years many search engines have tried to compete with Google with Google holding strong as the market leader across the globe. Google’s competitor Yahoo shifted the market with their search powered by Microsoft’s Bing due, it was reported, to being the default search engine on Firefox Web browsers. This move was temporary as users switched back to Google. Giants such as Apple if a decision is made to replace Google as a default search engine on its Safari browser could become a bigger deal for Google.
For many year individuals whether in the UK, USA, China, Australia or anywhere across the globe have
“Googled” and keep on “Googling”. What is for certain is that the world of Google changes and changes again. The impact of these Google changes affects websites and businesses so being abreast of Google’s changes will help your website remain strong with searches and your business strong too.
