Working from their dorm rooms, they built a search engine. The engine used links to determine the importance of individual pages on the World Wide Web. They called this search engine Backrub. Soon after, Backrub was renamed Google.
The name was a play on the mathematical expression for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. This aptly reflected Larry and Sergey’s mission “to organize the world’s information. And to make it universally accessible and useful’
