8.5 billion people search on Google each day. Google-and the Google community-have become one of the most important aspects of society. People have almost come to take this for advantage, forgetting the challenges of life before it. For example, a person would spend hours finding a simple fact-which could be done at the library, to illustrate-could now be found in seconds on Google. Besides being just a search engine, it links a multimedia platform together. You could shop, watch videos, and open documents. The Google community, which consists of youtube, google docs, and google maps, just to name a few, is also similar to this. With Google Maps, a computer algorithm can update you and find the correct path to maneuver to your destination. For Google to work, the first stage is finding out what pages exist on the web. There isn't a central registry of all web pages, so Google must constantly look for new and updated pages and add them to its list of known pages. This process is called "URL discovery." In Url discovery, google downloads text, images, and videos from pages it found on the internet with automated programs called crawlers. These pages are sparsely located under a URL code, like our course, "". Google did not create this but gathered this by finding it from the uploader. It finds what sites you need by an algorithm that uses user activity, keywords, phrases, and site history. A crawler is a program that systematically browses the World Wide Web to create an index of data. One critique for Google could be that there are some errors with the exact value, as Google is not perfect in predicting what the human brain wants.
