[2] It was officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary on June 15, 2006,[3] and to the eleventh edition of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary in July 2006.[4] The first recorded usage of google used as a verb was on July 8, 1998, by Larry Page himself, who wrote on a mailing list: "Have fun and keep googling!"[5] verbGoogle search engineWebneologism[1]eponymoussearch engine American Dialect Society[2]Oxford English Dictionary[3]Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary[4]Larry Page[5]verbGoogle search engineWebneologism[1]eponymoussearch engine American Dialect Society[2]Oxford English Dictionary[3]Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary[4]Larry Page[5] -

3 Why is Google Called Google? Googol is the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros. The term was coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner, and was popularized in the book, Mathematics and the Imagination by Kasner and James Newman. Googles play on the term reflects the companys mission to organize the immense amount of information available on the web. Googol is the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros.
