Are You A Part of This Google Family?

google family

That day I was wondering where we stand without Google. I took a deep breath and several questions came to my mind –

How useful Internet is to us without Google?

What is the use of running a website unless someone finds it through Google?

What is the use of accessing webmail features if it is not on Google’s platform?

What is the use of surfing videos, images or using Smartphones if they are not powered by Google?

What is the use of doing business online if you don’t know Google’s business solutions suite?

What is the use of analyzing website performance if you don’t access to Google Analytics?

The list is endless! Are we so dependent on Google?  If it is what is the reason of it?

 Google is anytime, anywhere and everywhere for you!

To cut it short, I cannot think Internet without Google. I am sure most of the people even keep Google search as their home page on start up. Being a part of Google family itself is an experience which anyone would love to share with others.

If you are one of them, you sure will like to know more about Google and its establishments. Hence the post is dedicated to all Googlers!
