Living in a world that is run by technology, we all believe in the importance of websites and search engines. Ever since Google has arrived in our lives, we have become more and more connected to the world, and our memory banks have been able to store more and more knowledge with time. This article strictly highlights the name of the websites that have been in the race of the tech world conquers since the beginning of 1993.
The beginning of 1993 is still considered to be one of the most progressing years as it brought to us the services of AOL. With a solid market value of $200 billion, this website became the largest web portal with $30 million users in just a few years. Until the beginning of the year 2000, this website enjoyed its peak success and popularity among web users. This success, however, died down when Verizon bought this website for $4.4 billion, and a new technology called broadband surfaced and took the whole tech world by storm and pushing AOL into the shadows.
Taking the second and third position on the list, Yahoo and Google were labeled the next big hits. Yahoo was the first internet giant to ever introduce the idea of index localization for the cities, but because of lack of budget, this idea couldn’t be turned into an accomplishment. Despite the failures, Yahoo remains in the top 10 global websites. After its successful period from early 2000 to 2006, it again became a huge hit after two years and ruled the throne from 2008 till 2010 June.
As far as Google is concerned, it is the biggest hub of data to date, with around 81,000,000,000 users per month. After its launch in 1990 as a simple university project, it gained more and more popularity among the users, and by the time we entered into 2020, it was already declared the most popular and successful search engine.
