 Well this blog is rather unusual from all other postings on Google. Really, me myself feel very proud of this blog…yeah really I do. I hope you will also feel it more intriguing and spellbound after going through this blog

Here are some unusual and gimmick facts about Google…..just sail on it..now!!

1. Do you know that the name “Google” is a typo? Initially the founders of the site thought that they were going for “Googol”.

2. Are you aware of the fact why Google page is so simple? Its because the founders really didn’t know about HTML and so they wanted a quick interface.

3. Co-founders of Google.com, Mr. Larry Page and Mr. Sergey Brin started Google as a research project when they were 24 and 23 years respectively. Isn’t is very encouraging?

4. Presently, Google receives about 200 million search queries daily from all around the Globe.

5. When Google was initially launched, there was no ‘Submit’ button. Instead, ‘Enter Key’ needed to be pressed.

6. Google Home page is set keeping in mind the other non-English countries. At present, you can set up it at 88 different languages. These include Latin, Urdu and Klingon language.

7. Do you know how long it will take for a person to search 3 billion pages of Google? Don worry, its will JUST take 5707 years!!! Thank god, there is Google software. It does it in 0.5 seconds….Really head scratching stuff.

8. What are Google’s logos, which appear in Google’s Homepage, called? It’s known as “Google Doodle”.

9. Most of us have heard about Google Earth but is there anyone who has heard about Google Moon and Google Mars? I think not really; the former  site maps the lunar surface and the latter  provides both the visible and infrared imagery view and shaded view.

10. Have you heard about the satellite imaging company, Keyhole,that Google acquired in October 2004?

Some of your things seemed to be at variance with some of my data. Is Google handling 200 milion queries per day. Our data suggest about one bilion as of March 1, 07. Also, Google may have as many as 15 billion documents indexed with about 13 billion searchable. Keyhole was acquired, integrated, and deployed in less than nine months, derailing one of Microsoft’s mapping projects.
