Brief explanation of Google
Google is an American large business company and software corporation, which operating in several countries around the world. To be more precise, Google specializes in Internet research, cloud computing and advertising technologies. Google develops a huge number of internet-based services and products and its main source of revenue coming from advertising through its Adwards program, which includes local, national and international distribution. Google began as a research project in March 1996 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who graduated their PhD Degree from the University of Stanford in California and firstly it based in a fellow student’s garage in Menlo Park in California. In their research, Larry Page and Sergey Brin came up with a plan in order to make a search engine which contains websites according to the number of other websites that linked to that site. The domain google.com was registered on September 14th 1997 and Google began its operation in September of 1998. Also, it must be stressed that Google sold advertisements with the use of a keyword and as a result created Google AdWords. In 2003, Google moved its offices and its facilities to its large Google estate which is located in Mountain View in California and even now it based there. In 2004, Google created its own free web email service, the Gmail. The service of Gmail aimed to compete the free online mail services, such as the services supplied by Yahoo and Microsoft, known as Hotmail. Moreover, in 2004 Google launched Google Earth which is a perfect map of the earth based on a satellite appearance. In 2005, Google cooperated with NASA on a variety of areas such as large data management and massive distributed computing. Consequently, this cooperation involved a building one million square foot at NASA’s Ames Research Center. In 2006, Google added to the Oxford English dictionary as a verb (to Google), so the brand of Google was very popular and allow other companies to use the Google brand in their own brad, without fear.

Today, Google is a top web estate in all big global markets and the advertising program of Google provides all businesses with measurable results and company’s general mission is to organize information around the world and make it accessible and useful.
