Google - Success Story


The Google search engine was created as a training project for students at Stanford University by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. In 1996 they worked on the search system BackRub, and in 1998, based on it, they created a search engine Google.

Although the corporation was founded on September 4, 1998, and the domain was registered on September 15, 1997, the search engine (from 2005 year) sometimes celebrates its birthday and on another day: both on September 7 and September 27.
