A googol is the large number $10^100$; that is, the digit 1 followed by 100 zeroes:
The term was coined in 1938 by 9-year-old Milton Sirotta, nephew of Edward Kasner. Kasner then extended the term to the larger "googolplex." It should be noted that "googol" is indeed the correct spelling of the term, so the spelling "Google" refers to the internet search engine, not one with 100 zeros.
