Midterm : Google

23 Oct

well well we’re not going to talk about the lady up there, we’re going to talk about the company written on her shirt.

Google is definitely the most innovative company in the world, without Google, we cannot search any information we need.

Google its a free search engine made by two person, Sergey M. Brin as the president of technology and Lawrence E. Page as the president of product.

TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION

The company is based on technology. So all things related to Google, along with technological innovation that previously no one had the same perfection with Google, and until now no one has to compete with perfection: including Yahoo and Microsoft Bing.

From the words Google, search engine certainly highlights as the most advance technological innovations from this company.

“Before you even enter your query in the search box, Google is continuously traversing the web in real time with software programs called crawlers, or “Googlebots”. A crawler visits a page, copies the content and follows the links from that page to the pages linked to it, repeating this process over and over until it has crawled billions of pages on the web.

Next Google processes these pages and creates an index, much like the index in the back of a book. If you think of the web as a massive book, then Google‘s index is a list of all the words on those pages and where they‘re located, as well as information about the links from those pages, and so on. The index is parceled into manageable sections and stored across a large network of computers around the world.”

– Google

Therefore, before we type the keyword you want to search, GOOGLE has transmitted a form of global system that creates an index like in the book. The key words which we type will be compared with the rest of the index that has been obtained by GOOGLE. The technology that brought GOOGLE makes search results appear in a fraction of seconds. Instant search is based on the technology each day enhanced to better satisfy its users, such as:

  • JavaScript Optimization.
  • Better Caching
