Google’s History: A Visual Look at the Search Engine’s Timeline

Filed as Features on August 26, 2010 1:41 pm

Ever since its launch in 1998, the company founded by Sergey Brin and Larry Page, has continued to grow and always expanded more and more. Today when thinking of Google it isn’t just a search engine anymore but also one of the biggest advertising platform world wide (the biggest?), a software distributor and a mobile phone manufacturer. Google is rumoured to venture even further and recently announced Google TV, an operating system for television sets. Only yesterday the company announced that it is positioning itself better in the VOIP and telephony space as well. Nobody knows when the company will stop to acquire and expand its services.

The Blog Herald team had a look at the history and timeline of Google and all this info was compiled in an infographic.

    Interesting that considering Google is an American company they have better market share outside the USA.
