“It’s fascinating to celebrate Google’s 25th birthday and reflect on its incredible journey. Over the years, Google has solidified its position as the world’s most popular search engine, particularly after Yahoo’s decline in the early 2010s. As a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc., Google has consistently ranked as one of the world’s most valuable companies, second only to Apple in Forbes’ 2020 rankings. With a brand value of $207 billion USD, it stands as a global tech giant, surpassing the likes of Coca-Cola and The Walt Disney Company.
Google’s dominance in the search engine market is striking, boasting an estimated 92% market share. Its influence is so pervasive that “Google it” has become a common phrase in everyday language, synonymous with conducting online research.
