Larry Page and Sergey Brin - The Backbone of Google Inc.

We've all heard of Google but some of you may not know who Larry Page and Sergey Brin are. These two men are the founders behind the major search engine that we want to rank in and call Google. Over the years Google has evolved and also gets the majority of the market share when it comes to search engine traffic. We all try to do various things in order to rank high in Google, but do you know how it all started? Do you know anything about the two men who founded the engine we all try to rank in? Well I'm going to go over some things I found out about Larry Page and Sergey Brin in this discussion, so come along for this journey Larry Page and Sergey Brin - The Backbone of Google Inc.


Who is Larry Page?
Larry page's full name is Lawrence Edward Page and he was bor on March 26th 1973 making him 44 years old at the time of posting this discussion. Larry attended the University of Michigan and eventually Stanford University where he met Sergey Brin. Larry page is an online entrepreneur who co-founded Google with Sergey and is also the CEO of it's parent company Alphabet Inc.


Who is Sergey Brin?
Sergey's full name is Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin or in Russion: ??????? ??????????? ????. Sergey is a computer scientist and an online entrepreneur just like his co-founding partner Larry Page. Sergey is the President of Alphabet Inc. which is the parent company of Google Inc.


How did Larry Page and Sergey Brin meet?
In 1995 Larry Page and Sergey brin crossed paths at Stanford University. Larry was 22 years old and a recent graduate of the University of Michigan and was considering going to Stanford University to further his education. Sergey Brin, who was 21 at the time, was the man who was assigned the job of showing Larry around campus, or in sorts, a tour guide. After they met they became friends and we all know what happened them Larry Page and Sergey Brin - The Backbone of Google Inc.


Why did Larry Page and Sergey Brin create Google?
Larry and Sergey created the beloved Google search engine in order to sort and organize all of the information online in one place. The only idea in the beginning for Google was to sort content based on what the person was searching and then show relevant results.


When was Google created?
Google was created in the late 90's and originally used their University's domain such as google.stanford.edu. They eventually registered their domain on September 15th in 1997 and eventually incorporated as a company almost a year later on September 4th 1998 while in their friends garage in Menlo Park, California Larry Page and Sergey Brin - The Backbone of Google Inc.


Why was Google named Google?
The search engine we all know and love which is Google was named after a googol which is 1 followed by 100 zeros. They switched up the letters a bit to fit into the english language a bit better and so it would be easier to write.


How rich are Larry Page and Sergey Brin?
According to Wikipedia both Larry and Sergey are worth roughly $49,000,000,000.00 each. They've acquired their billions over the years and they are 2 of the richest people in the world today.


How much do Larry Page and Sergey Brin make each year?
Well this may surprise you, but they each make $1 a year. Back in 2004 they decided to pay themselves $1 a year because they really didn't need the money. Mark Zukerberg actually does the same thing, but since 2013 Larry Page and Sergey Brin - The Backbone of Google Inc.


Where is Google located?
The corporate headquarters, or the Googleplex, is located in Santa Clara County, California in the United States.






In Conclusion:
Well, there really isn't a conclusion since this is just an overview of some points that people may not know. I hope this discussion spreads some light on how Google was created and a bit about the main men behind it Larry Page and Sergey Brin - The Backbone of Google Inc.

Nice share Razzy! Awesome information. I've seen a documentary on them as well as Google. Apparently, at one point, they wanted to sell Google's algorithm to Microsoft for a couple of millions but Microsoft turned them down as Bill Gates didn't believe this "search engine" stuff will get anywhere too fast. Imagine where Microsoft will be now if they bought Google back in the day.

I believe Google holds a real monopoly over this industry and makes me wonder if anyone can ever compete with them. If not it seems a little unfair to let Google function as a whole company, lack of competition and total monopoly by being some damn rich and powerful isn't exactly the democratic way.

Just my point of view, I believe companies like Facebook and Google have reached a totally new stage in terms of how big a company can actually get, even if better ideas are born, both Google and Facebook have the power to kill or acquire those said companies right from their infancy.

Google is one of the most useful inventions of this modern age. The most useful things at first might seem insignificant but at the end they always turn out bigger than one could have ever imagined.

One of the most surprising events that can happen and I would like to see, is someone coming up with an idea that would break the monopoly these companies hold over the Industry.

I think in their leadership many good things happened. A lot of things changed. And with enough good things around, you may find that such leaders will help create new future. You may find some good developers are in line to replace them. But I guess only the time will tell you how they are going to be good in near future.

Thanks for sharing this! I really had no idea, and it is always nice to know the back story of those who have had so much influence over the world and how it operates. I think it is just always nice to have the information on people who have done so well for themselves, how they started and how they became important.
