Google, I kid you not, sounds like ‘food’ today. Beg to differ? I bet not. Every waking moment of our everyday lives, we are attached at the hip to this word. Without question, without fail; in every possible way. Are we not? Do you really have a valid argument?
Let’s take a closer look…work, leisure, lifestyle, travel, news, health, business, shopping, communication… ALL easily accessible with one simple tool. Yep, you guessed it. GOOGLE. The list is unending. Just agree with me! There are quite a few players in the search engine fraternity today. I will be listing a few powerful ones below, but Google stands epically above all else, basking in the glory for the longest time!
Right from the inception of Google, which was in early ’98, they updated most algorithms a number of times and reached an astounding 500 – 600 updates per year. Google today is not just exceptionally exemplary, but highly commendable as the prime source of free information on a global level. (Dare we say…a “world-wide web” level?)
Absent of the public view that Google is simply a search engine optimization (SEO), the most likeable feature of Google is the plethora of segments and different functions it offers.
Take a look at some of the other major players:
…and let’s not forget the renowned Yahoo!. This is the short list of user favorites and has been compiled from a few reader-mail suggestions.
Some Trivia for you:
- Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1997 created Google.
- The word ‘googol’ was originally used for the number ONE which is followed by a series of 100 zero’s.
- Google is considered the most functional; it allows its users to key-in any phrase or key word on the search bar to pull up a list of their desired results.
- Google employees constantly seek to usher in the change that keeps up with the demands of today’s consumer.
Google strives to ensure that users are always given the best possible results from their searches (in terms of newness and relevance). Google is top-notch when it comes to opening up thousands of options for its users to research.
GOOGLE: AN OWNER
I’m sure we all know that Google is also the sole owner of certain well known social networking sites. It has its own ‘Google Chrome’ browser as well. Considering its massive popularity as a business model, Google as a company aims to excel in every way. Its main focus does not concentrate on sponsors or advertisers, but on being a search engine that ensures optimum utilization. Google has also established an anti-spam technology to accelerate its optimization.
OPERATIONS & OFFERINGS:
Operating with fairly complex overtones (which pools rankings and other terms to make their customers get optimum results out of the search from pages in the first 10 links) is the focus. Google offers a crawl-based option for a search engine, which apparently ensures efficiency in navigation. Next comes Google’s provisioning for advertisers. This is where the basis of your search will result in a relevant advertisement which will pop up with all required hyper links on the searched page. Google operates by charging these ad posters for every click made, and generates revenue that would blow your mind! No one is ignorant of the services provided by You-tube, Google+, Google buzz, Chrome, Google docs, Talk, G-mail, etc. It would take a massively collaborated effort to rise above Google!!
From the most computer savvy to the most naïve, Google is easily maneuvered by everyone. Most importantly, its existence is known to virtually every person on the planet. It is relevant, fast, and is the largest search catalogue available on web pages today!
Google even gives you the option to inter-link passwords and accounts, which invariably saves you the trouble of entering different ID’s and passwords for various Google accounts held – mind boggling! When you’re thinking of digging up useful information over the net, what’s your first choice for search bar? Automatically or even sub- consciously, most individuals are drawn to – GOOGLE.
It’s also said that references from Google get the highest conversation rates compared to any other engine. Honestly, I don’t think ANY other search engine will ever beat Google’s empire – do you?
