    In 1996, Larry Page and Sergey Brin started developing a project as Stanford University PhD students. It was called BackRub because the search engine relied on backlinks to estimate the importance of websites.

    The domain name of Google was registered on September 15, 1997, and the first ever Google search happened in 1998. Page and Brin demonstrated the accuracy of Google compared to other search engines at that time.

    According to Metro, Both were showing their work on the search software to computer scientist John Hennessy, who is hailed as the ‘godfather of Silicon Valley.’ Hennessy searched the word ‘Gerhard Casper’, who was the President of Stanford University at that time.

    Google’s rival search engine AltaVista (founded in 1995) showed the result for Casper the Friendly Ghost. But Page and Brin’s search engine showed up popped links to the human being Gerhard Casper, the one they were looking for.

Tyler shared his experience on LinkedIn and wrote: “There’s a fine line between perseverance and insanity. I’m still trying to figure out which one I have39 rejections, 1 acceptance.”

    His post has since gone viral with several reactions and comments. While a lot of people congratulated him, others raised questions about Google’s hiring process.
