Full Form of GOOGLE, What Does GOOGLE Mean?

Full Meaning of GOOGLE


Have you ever thought GOOGLE was just a misspell of GOGGLE, then later found out it’s actually an abbreviation? Well, I did too. Not until I saw an Indian movie titled “Chalk and Duster” – a story about two good teachers who were sacked because they decided to take education as education and not as business.

In the last scene of the movie, while the two teachers were proving their worth to the school management during an organized quiz competition for the teachers, with a prize of 50 million Rupees as stake by the school management. One of the questions asked was the full form of Google.

Some other questions answered in the movies were the full meaning of YAHOO, the distance between Sun and Earth, the meaning of Dalai Lama which means Ocean of compassion etc.

The teachers proved to be oceans of knowledge themselves despite being thought as old fashioned and incompetent. They went ahead to win the prize and proved that, despite their archaic method of teaching, they still stood among the best pf those who impart knowledge to the young ones who have now grown to downplay their method of teaching. It's a nice movie, you can check it out.

Ok, back to what brought you to this page –the curiosity to know what Google stands for. But before we dive into what Google full meaning is, it’s good practice to know the etymology and story of how the tech giant came to be, It’s founders and how much it’s worth.

Officially, Google is not an abbreviation nor does it have a full form. It is just a word generated from the word “Googol” which means a huge number. Google as a search engine which crawls web pages and index them deals with large amount of data. Hence, the word Googol. 

Founded in September 4, 1998 in Menlo Park, California, United States by two then Ph.D. students of Stanford University, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. The company has since then diversified from being just search engine to acquiring the video streaming and monetization platform, YouTube; a free hosting blogging platform, Blogger; Google map, Android mobile operating system; Chrome; Gmail and so many other products have been created by the company to make life easier.

Google is the most visited website in the world and the leading subsidiary to the umbrella company, Alphabet Inc with Sundar Pichai as its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) as at when writing this article.

The company is currently worth over two hundred billion dollars, with a revenue of over seventy billion dollars, fourteen billion dollars in Net income and 114,096 employees as at Q3 2019.

So, what is the full form of GOOGLE?

Google actually has a meaning just like YAHOO and the full meaning is GOOGLE: Global Organization of Oriented Group Language of Earth.

I bet you don’t know this before now. Ok, I might be wrong about that. Do you also know YAHOO and COMPUTER have full form?
