  • Hey there curious folks of the internet!

  • And welcome to What If where we try to figure out the impossible!

  • And today's question is what if Google went down for a day?

  • What if you entered a search and hit enter and this shows up!

  • This has happened before, once in 2009 and then again in 2013.

  • In 2013 every Google service went down for a brief amount of time including Google search

  • Gmail and of course YouTube.

  • How brief?

  • Well just 5 minutes.

  • What was the impact?

  • 40% of the internet traffic went down.

  • 40%!

  • The revenue loss?

  • MORE THAN HALF A MILLION DOLLARS!

  • that's a couple of Ferraris by the way.

  • 40%?

  • Is that how much we rely on Google that a 5 minute outage could cause a 40 percent decrease?

  • Well, yeah.

  • Gmail and Google chrome is actively being used by over 1 billion people.

  • The world population is 7 million.

  • That means.. wait wait a second, the world's population is I am sorry 7 billion old

  • habit.

  • Also 1.4 billion people use android which of course is another Google product.

  • You want to go somewhere new?

  • You use Google maps.

  • Not enough storage?

  • You have Google drive and yeah that thing that looked a lot like Facebook what is it

  • called yeah G+ well it also has users.

  • Ahem (I am one of them) and yeah YouTube?

  • Well, 300 hundred hours of videos are uploaded to YouTube every minute.

  • And 3.2 billion hours of videos are watched each month.

  • That's the time it took after the big bang for an electron to orbit around protons and

  • neutrons to form an atom.

  • A little scary right how?

  • Perfect for a dystopian novel I might say.

  • Next time you open your android phone to open Google chrome and use Google search to go

  • to YouTube ( you lazy person) remember you used a Google product to open a Google tool

  • to open a Google page and then go to a Google service.

  • So now imagine what if this whole system, every single Google service goes down for

  • a full day?

  • Utter Chaos.

  • Most of us use Google as our homepage and if stops working the first logical conclusion

  • will be that our internet connection is the one at fault.

  • But after a few minutes of disbelief will lead us to the fact that Google is in fact

  • not working and nor are Gmail and YouTube.

  • And the biggest problem? you won't be able to Google what happened to Google.

  • Your Facebook news feed will be full of images of the error screen with words like omg and

  • Armageddon being used simultaneously #googleisdown would be the next big trend

  • on twitter Android as well as most iPhone users will

  • be stranded on the roads as they won't have Google maps to assist them

  • People would be lost and unable to find the best pizza place just around the corner that

  • they pass by every day.

  • Everyone would be in search of an alternate search engine.

  • And Bing and yahoo will get traffic such as theirs servers never saw before and they might

  • even crash due to the huge splurge And then from out of the depths a

  • long forgotten name will echo.

  • DuckDuckGo.

  • DuckDuckGo is a search engine that doesn't track you and filter your search by using

  • your browser history.

  • Google does that by the way.

  • It's also quite a useful search engine and best for people who want privacy with their

  • data.

  • Duck duck go will also be trending and would steal much of the traffic and if Bing and

  • Yahoo had crashed they would be back online.

  • Without important google services specially Gmail Drive and of course google search for

  • a day the productivity across the whole world will drop by a huge margin. And the revenue

  • loss?

  • If 5 minutes made them lose half a million in 2013 than a day will cost them more than

  • 1.5 billion dollars!

  • And what about other companies throughout the world that use services owned by Google?

  • Among all this fiasco and pandemonium Internet life in North Korea will remain largely unaffected.

  • He doesn't look happy And Buzz Feed will probably post some new

  • articles like "Google went down for a full day, you wont believe what happened next" and "Top

  • 10 things you should do the next time Google goes down" . And yeah how can we forget the

  • memes?

  • So did you knew about duck duck go?

  • Did you ever even imagine what would happen if Google just stopped working?

  • Leave your views in the comment section and as always Like Subscribe and share!

  • And remember You can be the one behind the next what if video!

  • So send in your ideas to the links and if it's amazing ill make a video on it!

  • Love you people.
