    #1 - Sites listed in Google get 'points' for being linked to from other sites. If the other site has high points, you get higher points.

    #2 - The interface is very simple. There are no pop ups, no "Are You Single?" advertisements, no auction or any of that other crap. It loads quick.

    Google is from the word Googol, meaning 1 with 100 zeros after it.

    Google is the only search engine to have its name officially become a verb :)

    That #1 is pretty clever--I didn't know about that.
