The many improvements and amount of revenue Google generated last year make me wonder if they will slow down a bit or will they indeed take over the world? Google started in 1998 as a small search engine – now, it has set the bar for every search engine in existence. It influences the way every online company views the internet.
Just in the last year, Google has added a lot of services, improved their technology, and witnessed their own stock soar to new heights. New services includeGmail, an e-mail program; Froogle, a search engine designed specifically for online shopping; Google Earth, a very cool interactive map with satellite images; Google Video; Google Desktop; Google Talk; and the list goes on and on. To stay current with Google’s new services – those in testing as well as those recently released, check out http://labs.google.com.
Google has created quite a stir on Wall Street since its initial public offering in August 2004. Shares opened then at $85; this past Wednesday, they closed at $364. In 2005 alone, the worth of the stock increased by 115% – not bad for a search engine company.
Will there ever be an end to Google’s success? I wouldn’t bet on it, but I do know one thing – I should have invested in Google stock!
