Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in their college days when they were pursuing Ph.D. in Stanford University. In January 1996 Larry and Sergey were working on a research project and Google was born. Before Google the internet was based on web directories and there were no words like search engine marketing, PPC, SEO etc. After G, the world has changed drastically and almost every company’s success depends on Google marketing.
