Google : A Dream Company.
Google began as a research project in January, 1996 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, two Ph.D. students at Stanford University, California.
When Google was a Stanford research project, it was nicknamed BackRub because the technology checks backlinks to determine a site’s importance.
The name “Google” originated from a misspelling of “googol“.
Google is widely recognized as the “world’s best search engine” because it is fast, accurate and easy to use.
This is one of the first logo of Google used in somewhere 1996-1998 :
