Today is the 25th anniversary of google.com being registered as a domain on September 15th 1997. Google has celebrated their birthday at all different times but this was when the site was actually created.
The original name was supposed to be Google at all. It was actually “googol” which is a term that means a really, really long number. 1 followed by 100 zeros.
Someone spelled it wrong and the name we all know just stuck.
Happy 25 Google!
