Founded in California in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Google is a hugely successful American Multinational Corporation employing over 30,000 people worldwide. Larry Page and Sergey Brin met at Stanford University and they founded the company in a local garage.

Google literally has the power to make a company a lot of money by their ranking algorithm. A high ranking on Google can mean the difference between success and failure for an online company. The algorithm is said to be made up of over 200 ranking factors and SEO companies worldwide are daily trying to understand this.

Google is certainly a major part of our daily lives; it is even recognised as a verb in all the major dictionaries. While it does have rivals, none will have the influence or market share that it has. For a company formed in 1998, they have a chequered history already with an abundance of acquisitions throughout the period. With a share price of $85 from their IPO in August 2004, the share price is now an astounding $1158.72 (as at March 26th 2014).

This infographic explores the history of Google which is marked with an abundance of innovations and acquisitions. It charts other aspects of the company such as the name, the people behind the corporation and some interesting facts and possible prospects for the future.
