There is some confusion as to when Google celebrates its birthday but over the years it has stuck to the 27th of September. Here is last years Doodle.

Google wrote:

21 years ago, two Stanford Ph.D. students, Sergey Brin and Lawrence (Larry) Page, published a paper about launching a prototype of a “large-scale search engine.”

"We chose our systems name, Google, because it is a common spelling of googol, or 10100 and fits well with our goal of building very large-scale search engines,” the students wrote.

Today, Google operates all over the world in over 100 languages, answering trillions of search queries each year.

The scale is large, to say the least.

Happy 21st Birthday, Google!​

Where would we all be without Google?
