Instead of relying on memory and knowledge, the internet has become the ultimate—and, for many, the sole—source of information for questions that range from “why is the sky blue?”to how to get from point A to point B to the capital of Tennessee to how to say “where is the bathroom” in Spanish (¿Dónde está el baño?). With Google playing such a big role in how people find out information, it has become an essential site to dominate in order for businesses to be seen before their competing sites.
