Google Fits 15 Years of History in Six-minute Video

Google search engine is the brain child of Sergey Brin and Larry Page who stared this company as part of a research project at Stanford. Since its beginning Google has changed a lot and to show this journey of change, on Monday, the search engine giant launched a video, which compresses the historic journey of Google search to just six minutes.

Ben Gomes, a Google Fellow, wrote on the Inside Search (opens in new tab) blog that, "We wanted to share with you a short history of the evolution of search, highlighting some of the most important milestones from the past decade-and a taste of what's coming next".

This new video is a follow up of an earlier clip posted by Google earlier this year which depicts the "methodology of search ranking and evaluation."

According to Gomes, almost 500 changes are done on the Google Search every year and most of them are indecipherable to everyday users.

The 6 minutes and 21 seconds long video displays some of the major adjustments Google went through over the period of 15 years which includes Universal search, inclusion of images, news as well as videos and few other important changes.
