What does “GOOGLE” mean?

I don’t remember how life was before Google. During school time,  the hardest homework was to do some research. I used to look in the encyclopedia and ask dummy questions to come out with 500-word paragraph. But that was history..

Google changed our life and gave us an answer to every question, no matter how silly it is, but yet you will still get an answer! Now if I want to know what I want to eat today, I would go ask Google. But one day, I just asked myself what does the word “Google” means? I use Google more that 100 times a day and never asked this question! But what worry, ask “Google” what does “Google” means.

“The name ‘Google’ is a play on the word ‘googol,’ coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner. A ‘googol’ refers to the number represented by a 1 followed by 100 zeros. It’s a very large number.

Because it is a company name, Google is a noun. Logically. However, slowly but sure, it evolves and tends to become a verb as numerous users refer to the act of searching the Internet as “googling”. For example, I heard some friends saying “I’m going to Google it,” meaning that they will search the Internet using the Google search engine.

GOOGLE is stands for “Giving Opinions & Options Generously Linked Everywhere“.
