What is Google?
Basically Google is a search engine. For those who are unsure (although with Ciao being based on the web I am sure you have used it or another similar to it) what a search engine is, it is a website where if you are looking for information about a particular company or website but are unsure where to locate it you simply enter relevant keywords into a webpage and it will search through its records to find possible matches.
For example if you wanted to go onto Ciao’s website but could not remember the web address the you would type in to Google ‘Ciao’ and press the search button (or hit enter/return) and it will very quickly display a list of results, sorted by how likely they are relevant to your search. You then scroll through the relevant options and then click on the title of the webpage that you want to visit. The website then automatically re-directs you to this page.
In very simplistic terms Google could be likened to a telephone directory allowing you to find a certain piece of information quickly. However, Google is far more advanced that this and certainly much quicker with most searches taking less than one second to complete.
Google being based in America meant that there first webpage was obviously going to be American! Therefore Google.com was launched! However, realising that of course there are many people around the world who require a search engine (preferably in their native language and not producing results for American websites) Google have extended their websites so that they now have many different domains (web addresses) from countries such as France, Germany, Malta and many others all being written in the relevant native language. I believe the exact number is 97 different languages. This means that Google is now more accessible and can be used by non-English speakers to find information on the web.
