        A girlfriend. Really fickle, but you still love her. And you have to do ANYTHING for her to love you back and give you something.

        Google is an enormous hermaphroditic entity, with intimate knowledge of everyone on earth, which lives inside of everything electronic. Offerings must be made to google, to ensure that we are not forsaken. Google is all powerful, and never sleeps. Google is like a genie. Be careful what you wish for.

        Technically I believe it's the sound an ardvaark makes when choking on an African Fire ant.  It's really more like 'gooooooggggllllleeeeee'

        Could be Google is proof that there is a God, heaven could be a place called mountain view. Who else can crawl the world by day and night check all website, blogs and all the other bits. Google even knows when you click your own ads smile

            K Partinposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            You can start here  http://hubpages.com/forum/2

            But many hubs on the subject you can search.

                Thanks, but I don't get this. What is AdSense?

      2. Eric Graudins profile image60
        Eric Graudinsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        No, Misha posted a link to a thread that provided a lot more information about the question that you asked.
        The fact that he wrote it is irrelevant, and would not considered self promotional, because it os directly about the topic in question.

        On the other hand, if he had posted a link to a hub he had written on the topic of how to run a car on water, that would be self promotional.

        But I have the feeling that you know all about this, and are just on a fishing expedition. Good hunting lol

          I was amused that there was a hubber who actually wrote a hub about what Google is. So my question must not be that dumb then...

          But I don't understand that hub. It's definitely not for beginners.

            Ha! Some hubs can get pretty deep that's for sure...smile

              Next time some inexperienced person comes in here wondering about the same thing as I am now, he does a search for 'What is Google?', finds this thread and sees how the last fella who dared to ask an honest question got mocked. You are throwing all kinds of links at me while laughing into my face. Is it a wonder people get intimidated here?

          Dear Indigitamenta,

          The fact that you can surf the net, sign up to HubPages, publish a profile with bold text formatting, and use a forum, makes it highly likely that you know what Google is.

          So drop the charade and don't be a butt clown.

          Yours Sincerely,

          Darkside

      The word "google" was first used in the 1927 Little Rascals silent film "Dog Heaven", used to refer to a having a drink of water.


      or

      Googol describes a number which is followed by one hundred zeros

      I think Google is a guide for both professional and novice users who are searching their queries. Most important thing is that no one discourage with his search as users get answer and sometimes more than that. Last but not least Google is one and only reason of internet popularity.
