  19. Interesting Facts

  20. Indonesian Japanese Korean Latin Latvian Macedonian Maltese Mongolian Somali Swedish Thai Ukrainian Vietnamese Welsh Yiddish Afrikaans Albanian Arabic Bosnian Bulgarian Cambodian Chinese Croatian Danish Dutch Estonian Esperanto Finnish Hindi Icelandic Google exists in over a hundred languages For example:

  21. Google is the 5th biggest website • Over 8 billion websites (December 2004) • Most visited search engine worldwide

  22. Google has over 300 employee, the so-called “Googler”

  23. Possible income 2003: between 100 - 350 Million dollars • Nominated for Big Brother Award 2003

  24. Visited by half of the German Internet Users every month • More than one half of the Google users are non - American • 116,6 billion dollars is Google worth

  25. 4) Services - By Annika - • Google Search • What(ever) happened to George W. Bush

  26. Google: more than a search engine • provides more than 30 services, tools and functions for its users (e.g the search for definitions, the “I'm feeling lucky“search, Froogle, Google Earth) • The bread-and-butter service: Google Search

  27. Google Search

  28. Basis: PageRank system • examines the number and relative popularity of each website linked to another one • every link counts as a vote • “important“ sites have a strong vote for other sites

  29. Google combines PageRank with a complex text retrieval in order to find sites that a. are important b. AND fit the query • Google analyzes the number and closeness of search keys (and the content of the linked sites) to do the whole PageRank

  30. What(ever) happened to George W. Bush

  31. Entering the query “failure“ or “miserable failure“ plus using the “I'm feeling lucky“ search leads directly to George W. Bush's official websites

  32. 2 reasons • The other one refers to the PageRank system • A number of webmasters use the phrase “failure“ or “miserable failure“ to describe and link to Bush's websites

  33. Site ranks on top of Google's result list due to a. its importance and popularity b. the descriptions on pages connected to this site • Influencing the ranking of a given page in results returned by the Google search engine is called Googlebombing

  34. 5) Criticism - By Farina -

  35. protection of data privacy is not transparent for the user a. Cookies: data about the user and user's activities online b. E-mail: can be read through for advertisement • Google Earth: detailed maps are easier to access

  36. Screening of information: editors and user decide on what search result turns up • Copying of books: some authors regard as dismissive of their rights and illegal • Google Base: takes over the classifieds in newspapers • Google for everything: you can even plan a murder with this search engine
