Google Celebrates its 21st Birthday!

Share your love

Put on your party hats as Google celebrates its 21st birthday today! On a personal level, I can’t thank the search engine enough for being my friend and tutor countless number of times. And I don’t need anyone to tell me that Google has played a similar role in the lives of trillions of people all over the globe.

The Beginning

Google has even come up with a doodle on the occasion to celebrate the event. It shows the vintage image of a desktop computer just as it would have been 21 years back. What’s more, the date imprinted on the photograph is 27th September, 1998.

In 1998, Stanford Ph.D students Sergey Brin and Larry Page published a paper titled The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine. The idea of a search engine having about 24 million pages was put forth in that paper. Sergey Brin and Larry Page are the co-founders of Google.

Search Engine and Beyond

From a search engine helping you in that history project on the Aztecs to finding that little pub in the narrow lane where your old friends are waiting for you, Google has got you covered in more ways than you can think of. With time, Google is bound to expand into more sectors governing our daily lives.

The company has been celebrating its birthday on the 27th of September since 2006. Prior to that, it was celebrated on September 7, 8, and 26. However, it was incorporated on the 4th of the same month.

Best Wishes!

It has been a magnificent journey for the “large-scale search engine” as the Ph.D students outlined in their paper. We would like to thank Google for making our lives easier and opening the doors to the huge world outside whenever we want, wherever we want.

Happy Birthday Google!
