Transcript of Google
Google has offices all over the world, from Sydney, Australia to Madison, Wisconsin. They say they want to help all people from everywhere they can. Google's biggest office is located in San Francisco, California. Since Google Madison is only an hour away, I found a little more information on it. There address is: 301 S Blount St #301, Madison, WI 53703 and the Madison office got 4.8 stars out of a 5 star review. Google has more than 70 offices in 40 countries around the world.
Doodles are the fun and sometimes surprising changes to Google's logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives or birthdays of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists. Google has created over 1,000 doodles for their homepages all over the world. There is a team of artists and engineers that are behind every doodle you see. Google calls this team "Doodlers."
The Impact Google has on our Lives
Google thinks the perfect search engine is something that understands what you mean and gives you what you want. Google has made products beyond search, but their main focus, search, still remains in their minds. With all of Google's products, their goal is to make it easy as possible to find all of the information you need and to get everything you want to get done finished, so you have time for the things you're good at. Spending time with family, throwing parties, and just having fun. (Google's motto)
I picked Google as my topic because I had a question about it; How has Google impacted our lives? I think all people have a different opinion about it. Someone might think that it is an innovation in research; just for speed. Another person, like me, might think that its for helping people.
Why Did I pick Google as my Topic?
Google was made in 1995 when two people meet at college. So much has happened in these 18 years and a lot has changed, too. Here is a timeline that shows what has happened in the 18 years:
Yoshka, the Google dog!
First TV commercial
Some of Google's offices over the world
Doodle for the first day of summer
Doodle for the first day of winter
Doodle for 40th anniversary of the moon landing
First doodle made 14 years ago for the Burning Man Festival
What Google Believes
Larry Page and Sergey Brin wrote a list when Google was just a couple years old. They promised to always stay true to this list:
1. Focus on the user and all will follow.
Google wants to always focus on you.
2. It's best to do one thing really, really well.
Google is a search engine. That's all they want to focus on doing.
3. Fast is better than slow.
Google always wants to make thing faster.
4. Democracy on the web works.
Google survives on the millions of people posting links. You get to decide what to do from there.
5. You don't need to be at your desk to need an answer.
Google allows you to find information everywhere you travel.
6. You can make money without doing evil.
Google denies all pop-up advertising on their homepage.
7. There's always more information out there.
Google is always getting new information.
8. The need for information crosses all borders.
Google makes it possible to find information no matter where you live or what language you speak.
9. You can be serious without a suit.
Google wants to make work challenging, but make the challenge fun for its workers.
10. Great just isn't good enough.
Google sets itself at goals they can't reach yet, but know they will be able to in the future. They think of everything as a starting point, not an ending point.
Google vs Other Search Engines
Google towers above all other search engines. Google's stocks keep making money while others aren't doing too well. As you can see in the picture, Google is way above Yahoo and Bing in the stock market. Other than that, Google by far leads in number of searches for 2012.

In 1999, they move into a small building with only 8 employees. Google gets their first company dog, Yoshka, who comes to work with the vice president of operations. Next Google gets a chef named Charlie Ayers. He got picked out of 40 others who tried.
Next in 2000, Google offers more languages: French, German, Italian, Swedish, Finnish, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Norwegian, Danish, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. That brings the total to 15 supporting languages! Then Google wins their first Webby Award.
Then in 2001, they hit 26 languages. Image search launches allowing access to over 250 million images and the index size grows to 3 billion documents.
In 2002, Google hits 72 languages! Google opens their first office in Sydney, Australia and they get 4,000 new sources.
In 1995, Larry Page and Sergey Brin meet at Stanford University and right away they start working on a search engine called "Back Rub". They change the name to Google to represent the infinite amount of information that can be found on the internet.
Then later in 1998, Andy Bechtolsheim writes a check for $100,000 for Google Inc. so they can become an official company. Google now has enough money to set all of there things up in a garage. Later that year, PC magazine names Google as one of the top 100 search engines.
In 2004, Google's search index hits a new milestone: 6 billion items including 4.28 billion sites and 880 million pictures.
Next in 2005, Google unveils Google Earth. Google Earth is a site where you can type in any place in the world, and it will take you there. Google makes their first television commercial.
Recently in 2013, Google teamed up with Starbucks, a coffee company, to offer fast and free WiFi for 7,000 locations in the US.
