I am not much of a writer.. but this thing has been striking my head for long time.
Truckload of things have changed since the internet came to life, there were times when we had to submit a page to Google in order to add it to their index. Now Google and everything else on the web has advanced to a very very advanced level, things are not similar to what they were in 2000-2005 or 2010.
Here is quote from Wikipedia about the History of Internet
Research into packet switching started in the early 1960s and packet switched networks such as Mark I at NPL in the UK, ARPANET, CYCLADES,Merit Network,Tymnet, and Telenet, were developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s using a variety of protocols. The ARPANET in particular led to the development of protocols for internetworking, where multiple separate networks could be joined together into a network of networks.
These networks of networks of networks have made what it is possible today. What do you think the internet is, internet is a group of websites that are served through a unique webaddress, also known as a domain name.
What I learned from my Recent visit to India
On my recent visit to India, I met a guy who runs a website called as mahresult.nic.in, he told me how he is able to run a network of Education related stuff on the web and make money from the same. Well, I was amazed how much knowledge that kid had about the internet, he is literally above the levels of normal people of this age.
