Google was founded on September 4, 1998. The company, for the first seven years, celebrated its birth anniversary on the same date. However, later it was decided to shift the celebrations to September 27. Why, you may ask? Well, it was done to coincide with the announcement of the record number of pages that this search engine was indexing.

Co-founded by Sergey Brin and Larry Page, Google is one of the most used search engines globally. Google’s current CEO is Sundar Pichai, who succeeded Larry Page on October 24, 2015.

In 1997, Sergey Brin, a graduate student at Stanford University, just happened to be assigned to show Larry Page, who was considering Stanford for graduate school at the time, around campus. By the next year, the two Google co-founders were building a search engine together in their dorm rooms and developing their first prototype. This is how Google Inc. was officially born in 1988.

“Every day, there are billions of searches on Google in more than 150 languages around the globe, and while much has changed from the early days of Google, from its first server housed in a cabinet built out of toy blocks to its servers now being housed in more than 20 data centers globally, its mission of making the world’s information accessible to everyone remains the same,” Google Doodle page says.
