Google is celebrating its 22nd year on Sunday with animated birthday doodles.
Doodle celebrates us with Google’s G with a cake and gifts at a video online video conferencing party with his Google colleagues. The virtual party reminds us that in times of coronavirus, on special occasions, it is important to maintain social distance.
The company was founded about 22 years ago when Stanford received his Ph.D. Students and Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page published a paper called Anatomy of large-scale hypertextual web search engines. In it, the duo outlined Google, a prototype “massive search engine” with a database of “at least 24 million pages”.
In the 22 years since Brin and Page designed their vision for search engines, the company has grown dramatically. Google’s search engine now indexes billions of web pages, but the company has gone from humble beginnings to being one of the most influential search engines in advertising. Google now owns Alphabet, a parent company that has templates that touch everything from self-driving cars to its Android mobile software.
But its date of birth is really a bit bad. The company has celebrated its birthday on September 27 since 2006, but last year, it celebrated its birthday on September 26, and in 2004 and 2003, the dates were September 7 and 8, respectively. Google is not sure why this is, especially since it was added on September 4, 1998.
