Google Acquisitions

 

Google is one of the fastest growing companies if not the fastest growing company in the history of companies.

It all started with a simple search page, I remember the first time I used them in 2000. There wasn’t even an image
search in place yet, just a web search.The big feature was that it worked well and had the “I’m feeling luck” option. Over the past 9 years they have grow quite quickly and have purchased
over 50 different companies.

Here’s the list of the 50 companies and the service they derived from each company.

    You forgot Android, Inc. in August of 2007

  2. I believe everything composed was actually very logical. But, what about this?

    what if you were to create a awesome headline? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added
    something to possibly get people’s attention? I mean Google Acquisitions – Make Money Online Home Business is a little boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news
    headlines to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about everything’ve written. Just
    my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.
