Re: Google stands for?

Google is one of the most popular brands on the Internet and this was proved by the numerous surveys conducted by the research companies. Because it is so famous, most of the Internet users are frequently talking about it just like about a person. But have you ever asked yourselves what Google means

or at least where the Google term comes from? Well, Dictionary.com, one of the most popular web-based dictionaries defines Google as "a trademark used for an Internet search engine. This trademark often occurs in print as a verb, sometimes in lowercase."

But still no definition of the world. According to the Google guys, the company's name comes from the word 'googol' which is actually a number invented by Milton Sirotta. Probably the Google name is related to the number of the results provided by the search technology which is usually huge.

Go means Leave ,go away ,go off,set off
Ogle means Look at, gaze at, observe

The verb "google" was added to the Merriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary and the Oxford English Dictionary, meaning "to use the Google search engine to obtain information on the Internet
