Google Presents the Evolution Of Search
Date posted: November 30, 2011
Google is providing a bit of a blast from the past today, releasing a video that highlights some of the key milestones in search over the last ten years. It seems like Google has been around forever, so it’s easy to forget that Google.com was not even registered until 1997. We’ve certainly come a long way since then.
Particularly interesting is the effect that September 11th had on the creation of Google News, and the way the search engine giant has continuously adapted to the changing online landscape. Search, as this video makes clear, has to be progressive. This Google video, therefore, also seems to be something of an introduction to future changes in the pipeline.
The company posted this on their blog:
“Our goal is to get you to the answer you’re looking for faster and faster, creating a nearly seamless connection between your questions and the information you seek. That means you don’t generally need to know about the latest search feature in order to take advantage of it.”

Google also released a Search Timeline (Click here to see a larger version of Google’s Search Timeline):
