Formation of Google:
Brin met Page at Stanford in the summer of 1995. Back then most of the time they had arguments regarding almost everything, however with time they understood each other and started working on a project together. They developed a Pagerank algorithm, which eventually became the most important aspect of Search Engine Optimization. The algorithm was directly dependent on backlinks, through which one website is connected to the other all across the internet.
Initially, due to lack of funding, the duo used any computer component that could assist their project in a cheaper way. Soon the project grew in popularity and thus in order to concentrate on their studies, larry and Sergey tried to sell the newly formed search engine. However as the deal could not finalize, so they themselves dropped out and formed a new company named “Google”. The rest is history.
