Google Takes Cover Under Alphabet Umbrella
Google Restructuring Underway
Google has reorganized its corporate structure, but we probably won’t be saying “I’m going to go Alphabet that” anytime soon. Instead, the search engine part of the business will continue to be called Google, and we’ll keep Googling away. The search engine will be under the umbrella of the new corporation Alphabet, which will house separate divisions for projects such as Calico, which aims to extend the human lifespan, and X lab, which is trying to create drone delivery. Google’s stock will continue to be traded under GOOGL and GOOG on Nasdaq, and speculation is widespread about what the restructure will mean for finance or exactly how it will look on paper. At OnlineImage®, we don’t expect this to affect searchers very much. If anything, it will mean the company can focus more on improving the search engine.
