Google was born in 1996 when two Stanford students Larry Page and Sergey Bin started it as a research project. In 1998 it was officially launched as a search engine. Since then it had little competition as it provided the most relevant searches and at that time had mere few competitors. Analysts believed it was more advance then the searches provided by hotbot, yahoo, MSN and excite; having achieved a 60 million indexed website database Google was forging ahead. It was only a matter of time; Google started acquiring acquisitions, YouTube, jotspot and even Motorola in recent years. What is the reason for their success? We believe it is attention to detail.
