Today's Google's fifteenth birthday. September marks 15 years since graduates Larry Page and Sergey Brin set up a small web crawler from a garage in Silicon Valley, which went onto become the world's biggest search engine.
The site was originally called BackRub, but was changed in 1997 to Google - a misspelling of the word googol which is a term for the number one followed by one hundred zeros.
There is a little confusion around when Google's official birthday is, but reports claim papers to incorporate the company were filed on September 4 1998. The company became incorporated three days later and the domain was registered on September 15.
Google, however, now officially celebrates the event with a Google Doodle on September 27.
The site is now the world's number one search engine and its name has become so synonymous with searching, it is now used as a verb in its own right in trhe English language.
Below the video of the interactive animated doodle that Google has created to celebrate the day.(Information from MailOnLine)
