    I join Prashob in best wishes to Google. Google started as a search engine 12 years back and today is a giant in the internet. There is no area today which is not having the presence of Google. From the position of one of the search engines Google expanded slowly and steadily to provide service to people on the net in many fields. They have the offer of web sites who do not want to hire space. Google provides sub domains.

    It has the largest social net work the orkut. Its G mail is a popular e mail platform. Along with the email, it has the chat client for writing, audio or video chats. Google has offering of online storage facility of 2 GB since a long time. It has photo storage, calender, blog and a host of other services for any one without any restrictions. It is having one of the good browsers. Several rivals tried to stifle Google, but it grew more and more strong and wide.It service is most useful for knowledge seekers.

    I Wish Google many more years of offer of services to the netties.

    With Regards

    Google began in January 1996 as a
    research project by Larry Page and
    Sergey Brin when they were both PhD
    students at Stanford University in California.[28] While conventional search engines
    ranked results by counting how many
    times the search terms appeared on
    the page, the two theorized about a
    better system that analyzed the relationships between websites.[29] They called this new technology PageRank, where a website's relevance was determined by the
    number of pages, and the importance
    of those pages, that linked back to the original site.[30][31] A small search engine called
    "RankDex" from IDD Information
    Services designed by Robin Li was, since 1996, already exploring a similar
    strategy for site-scoring and page ranking.[32] The technology in RankDex would be patented [33] and used later when Li founded Baidu in China.[34][35] Page and Brin originally nicknamed
    their new search engine "BackRub",
    because the system checked backlinks to estimate the importance of a site.[36][37][38] Eventually, they changed the name to
    Google, originating from a misspelling of the word "googol",[39][40] the number one followed by one hundred
    zeros, which was picked to signify that
    the search engine wants to provide
    large quantities of information for people.[41] Originally, Google ran under the Stanford University website,
    with the domain[42] The domain name for Google was
    registered on September 15, 1997,[43] and the company was incorporated on September 4, 1998. It
    was based in a friend's (Susan Wojcicki[28]) garage in Menlo Park, California. Craig Silverstein, a fellow
    PhD student at Stanford, was hired as the first employee.[28][44][45] In May 2011, unique visitors of Google
    surpassed 1 billion mark for the first
    time, an 8.4 percent increase from a
    year ago with 931 million unique visitors.[46] Financing and initial public offering The first funding for
    Google was an August
    1998 contribution of
    US$100,000 from Andy Bechtolsheim, co- founder of Sun Microsystems, given before Google was even incorporated.[48] Early in 1999, while still
    graduate students, Brin
    and Page decided that
    the search engine they
    had developed was
    taking up too much of their time from
    academic pursuits.
    They went to Excite CEO George Bell and offered
    to sell it to him for
    $1 million. He rejected
    the offer, and later
    criticized Vinod Khosla , one of Excite's venture
    capitalists, after he had
    negotiated Brin and
    Page down to
    $750,000. On June 7,
    1999, a $25 million round of funding was announced,[49] with major investors including the venture capital firms Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Sequoia Capital.[48] Google's initial public offering (IPO) took place five years later on August
    19, 2004. The company offered
    19,605,052 shares at a price of $85 per share.[50][51] Shares were sold in a unique online auction format using a
    system built by Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse, underwriters for the deal.[52][53] The sale of $1.67 billion gave Google a market capitalization of more than $23 billion.[54] The vast majority of the 271 million shares
    remained under the control of Google,
    and many Google employees became
    instant paper millionaires. Yahoo!, a competitor of Google, also benefited
    because it owned 8.4 million shares of Google before the IPO took place.[55] Some people speculated that Google's
    IPO would inevitably lead to changes
    in company culture. Reasons ranged
    from shareholder pressure for
    employee benefit reductions to the
    fact that many company executives would become instant paper millionaires.[56] As a reply to this concern, co-founders Sergey Brin and
    Larry Page promised in a report to
    potential investors that the IPO would not change the company's culture.[57] In 2005, however, articles in The New York Times and other sources began suggesting that Google had lost its anti-corporate, no evil philosophy.[58] [59][60] In an effort to maintain the company's unique culture, Google
    designated a Chief Culture Officer, who
    also serves as the Director of Human
    Resources. The purpose of the Chief
    Culture Officer is to develop and
    maintain the culture and work on ways to keep true to the core values
    that the company was founded on: a
    flat organization with a collaborative environment.[61] Google has also faced allegations of sexism and ageism from former employees.[62] [63] The stock's performance after the IPO
    went well, with shares hitting $700 for the first time on October 31, 2007,[64] primarily because of strong sales and
    earnings in the online advertising market.[65] The surge in stock price was fueled mainly by individual
    investors, as opposed to large
    institutional investors and mutual funds.[65] The company is now listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the ticker symbol GOOG and under the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol GGQ1.
