Google History @Google.com

Already Google.com, still in beta, was answering 10,000 search queries each day. The press began to take notice of the upstart website with the relevant search results, and articles extolling Google appeared in USA TODAY and Le Monde. That December, PC Magazine named Google one of its Top 100 Web Sites and Search Engines for 1998. Google was moving up in the world.

As 2000 ended, Google was already handling more than 100 million search queries a day ”” and continued to look for new ways to connect people with the information they needed, whenever and wherever they needed it.

In February of 2002, AdWords, Google’s self-service advertising system, received a major overhaul, including a cost-per-click (CPC) pricing model that makes search advertising as cost-effective for small businesses as for large ones. Google’s approach to advertising has always followed the same principle that works so well for search: Focus on the user and all else will follow.
