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!
