I think the only accurate way to find out what is the programming language of Google is from someone who works there.Because talking about Google is something very general this days, in my opinion. It used to be a cool search engine, now it's Google, it's everywhere, it's my email address, Google Earth, a toolbar in my browser... come on!Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but if Google is hiring C, C++, Java, Shell, PHP, Perl and Python engineers, all we know is that they use them all.But we can't know whether they are using C++ in the search engine or in Google Earth, or both. Why can't they access the info via different languages, depending on the one with best performance for the application.Anyway, I suppose that Google doesn't use PHP for the search engine, as Google's founders began its development in 1995/96 at school and it was then when PHP/FI was first realeased so I don't think they'd used a new technology, which was VERY basic in those times, to make a very advanced thing. Don't you think?
programming languages used at google
What Is Programming Language Of Google Etc.?
That statement is somewhat backed up by Google itself..
They have modules to learn more about C++, Java, and Python. What does it tell you?

Not 100% sure but this is what I hear:Amazon is made in mostly perlAlso user authentication and CC but thats easyAnd google uses python for the engine and then uses a combination of PHP and perlTwitter was made in Ruby on Rails (100% sure on this)Microsoft was made in ASP.NETMSN was made in asp.Net or asp most likely.Facebook was made in PHPMyspace was made in ColdfusionGoogle Maps - Definitly Ajax and flashGoogle Chrome - c++
For the Google Insirator Google Works with ASP, and informing to C++ based with C# Windows and there coming wiuth google chrome with C# that pretty Fail to me

If i'm not wrong youtube was on ASP. Since when it was ported to PHP ? I don't know how you checked that it was on PHP ? Before google purchased orkut,it was on PHP later moved to ASP. And the performance of site is down after switch.
Youtube.Com - PHP
I doubt that with word "ALL". Besides your own list shows most of the sites are PHP based. So how can you say that ALL are made by ASP.
As you can see nearly all the websites are coded in ASP.NET!
that is pretty obvious now isn't it ??
In addition to the engines that power the searches alot of those sites also use CSS or style sheets and various forms of html. Did you know that those sites where you can not change the size of the fonts with your browser are usually done with style sheets? Style sheets can standardized your font size and look.
Many large websites use multiple programming language in their back-end depending upon the particular feature you're utilizing. The back-end of Google search is powered by Python, although they also make use of PHP, Java, and other language at various locations. (The creator of Python is employed at Google, by-the-by.)
Amazon and eBay primarily rely on CGI, which isn't a programming language, but rather an interface that allows a web application to communicate with a program on the server, such as one written in C. These (typically and predominantly) offline languages that are compiled tend to offer greatly improved processing speeds vs. interpreted languages, such as Python, PHP, or Ruby.
Microsoft-owned websites tend to rely on ASP.net, but although many would say they strictly rely on this technology, it's not true. You'll find Python code and others within Microsoft projects, as well.
Wikipedia relies predominantly on PHP, and Twitter relies mostly on Ruby on Rails, although their most intensive features are handled by Scala, due to scaling problems they've had with Ruby.
I hope this helps clarify a few misconceptions from earlier posts.
Im just curious to know , which is the programming language behind the following websites.if u know anyone/all of them please tell me.
3- msn.com ( i assume asp.net)
As i mentioned in previous posts that im in learning mode so i just ask sometimes stupid questions.. and i have to confess that this forum is very excellent place , since its not only providing the free hosting , it is giving me so much knowledge , what Google or others cant give thank you for support always.
Let me put everything straight for you. Big companies like Google, Ebay and Amazon have one little secret in common and that is the layer between the front end and the backend. Seriously it does'nt matter what the frontend (PHP, ASP.Net, JSP) and backend (Mysql, SQL server) is. What really matters is the middle layer and I am 100% sure the middle layer is definitely a mixture of Python, C and C++. Why I am saying so confidently is because of a reason which I really do not want to reveal here.Open source has and always be an important part of all the top notch companies excluding microsoft. Python is playing a very important role in the success of these companies. Amazon Web Service (EC2) which uses Xen virtualization at their datacenter heavily uses Python. The reason why Python is a big hit is because it gets embedded to other languages for eg. Ironpython in C#, Jython in Java and Cpython in C and C++.So I guess you must explore more on python.My advice to you is to take Open Source technology more seriously.

youtube.Com since was purchased by google was rewritten entirely in Python, this info is absolutely true (cannot tell details why). Actually google does not use PHP except for some small things ( but think even for those small things are rewritten in Python).
Google is fully oriented on Java and Python. No ASP or PHP in use
The same for google.Com, it is a bull**** to say that google.Com uses PHP-reply by XVit
It's really easy to find what programming language a websites uses by just going on google and typing in <WebsiteDomain> .<language> (e.G. Youtube .Php).

Google has historically used PHP, and its use can still be seen in some lab projects, so this isn't correct. Note, too, that Google mentions PHP in many of its job descriptions for this same reason. It is true, however, (and as I said in my original post) that Google relies extensively on Python (and Java as well, among other things). I also mentioned in my post that the -creator- of Python is employed at Google, and for trivia points, he's allowed to use 50% of his time to continue developing Python while at work (pretty nice incentive, huh?).
Most large technology companies actually understand that different languages have different advantages/disadvantages and don't succumb to fanboism for a particular language. They use what works well for the task, and that's that.

Google uses Python extensively. It is such an amazing language. After a few hours with the tutorial you will be doing Remote Procedure Calls, something that would take a lot of time in other languages. Best of all it's completely open source, with quite commendable GUI kits for most platforms
Google uses a mix of languages for it's various purposes.
1. Orkut is in ASP.NET
2. Google's Help System is in Python
3. Definitely C/C++ for Searching
CGI is used at a lot of sites. PayPal(sister concern of EBay) uses it
Amazon uses CGI. Enter amazon.com/index.cgi to see yourself
And Python is a interpreted language as pointed out but it can be converted to native code & it can also call native code written using C++ (python code can also be called from C++).
Facebook using Objective C++ as it's better then the other languages used by Google, Amazon, etc.
