Quotes
From smartphones to self-driving cars to browsers, email, social networking, and augmented-reality glasses, Google doesn’t just mess around in a huge number of divergent technology arenas, it credibly competes in most of them, has essentially invented some of them from the ground up, and in some key segments, is the dominant player.

Google Page Rank
Google Technology – http://www.google.com/technology
“The heart of our software is PageRank™, a system for ranking web pages developed by our founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Stanford University … PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page’s value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves “important” weigh more heavily and help to make other pages “important.” Important, high-quality sites receive a higher PageRank, which Google remembers each time it conducts a search. Of course, important pages mean nothing to you if they don’t match your query. So, Google combines PageRank with sophisticated text-matching techniques to find pages that are both important and relevant to your search. Google goes far beyond the number of times a term appears on a page and examines all aspects of the page’s content (and the content of the pages linking to it) to determine if it’s a good match for your query.”

History
Google’s original Mission Statement (1998) was to ‘organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.’
