Tech giant, Google is down once again. The internet behemoth, Google has faced outage for about 5 minutes on 24th Jan, 2016 around 21:20 hours (IST). The reason was unknown but it would have incurred great loss for the tech giant. Google‘s product pages were returning a 500 Server Error.
Google didn’t release any official statements stating the problem of the error. We reached out to Google for comment but it remained unresponsive. 500 Internal Server Error is a generic error message, given when no more specific message is suitable. Google handles 60,000 search queries per second. Google has processed 1.7 trillion search queries in the year 2015.
