Who doesn’t love Google? No really? If you don’t i’d love to know why or the specifics. I myself find their services extremely helpful and interesting. I mean what can’t they do? They pretty much have an answer for everything and even coined a phrase; “Google it.” I genuinely hope the best is yet to come and they still got plenty more in store. So here’s to you Goggle and your profitability.

With this in mind, I’ve always been somewhat curious as to how Google was so successful and profitable as I thought of them as simply getting their start as a search engine and expanding accordingly. Upon researching it, the answer was actually quite simple and not at all surprising. They were using a simple and timeless strategy to drive revenue and allow themselves to expand their reach and services.

Below is an infographic all about Google and an in depth look at their profitability and the major source of revenue driving their success. This is simply advertising and the revenues they generate from allowing other companies to market through their websites or services. As is generally the case Goggle has the answer and I think that someone could easily use Googles techniques for success to make themselves or their corporation extremely profitable.

As Google As It Gets

Standard

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last 50 years, there’s a little company known as Google that’s been changing the way the world uses the internet and constantly expanding its services seemingly by the second. Having just recently thrown its hat into the ring of available social media/networking sites. I wanted to take a look at the service Google became known for and what exactly it is that happens when you use Google’s search engine. Even though Google is somewhat secretive about the whole process.

I mean how in the world would someone find this blog when i’m done writing it? How does Google decide what information goes to the top of their searches? What do they consider relevant or reliable search results?  There’s so many questions that arise in relation to the way Google works it occurred to me…

What better place to find information on Google than Google!

This video is included in Google’s about section and attempts to relay just exactly what it is that happens when you search something on their site. As is this quote, “Search is how Google began, and it’s still at the heart of what we do today. We devote more engineering time to search than to any other product, because search can always get better and faster at helping you find what you want, when you want it, where you want it.”

But just in case the video straight from Google’s about section wasn’t enough!! Below I’ve included a cool infographic I came across with additional information about how a Google search works! I would love to know how everyone uses Google and its many applications. Thoughts about this colossal search engine and its future. Feel free to share anything relative to this discussion and if your not sure where to start, Google it!

Dial M for Mobile

Standard

In an increasingly mobile technological world there is no time like the present to learn how to exploit the available accommodations. For instance as a Management major at the University of Nevada, Reno, I am often engaged in team or group activities that typically require a certain degree of accountability and  face-time. However, with the creation of Google applications like Google Docs, not only can you edit and share work with your entire group in real time but you can each work from seperate computers in different locations. Almost entirely eliminating the excuses of time or location constraints and allowing each individual member to offer much greater degrees of reinforcement for one another.

Therefore it may be in your best interest to take a peek at the current available line of Google Products, things they have in store, and great hidden features. While trying to devise a way you can use them to make your life easier and more convenient. Of course Google is only one of many innovative sources of mobile technology. Company’s like Apple are always looking to the future with things like this here. Nevertheless, wherever you come across these tools be sure to maximize their potential and share them with others. This will only increase the practical applicability of the tool.

Coincidentally this brings me to the part of the post where I share a local business or artist of personal interest who advocates or uses social media or networking. This time it is a local business that I came across while being a member of one of the aforementioned groups at the University of Nevada, Reno.
