Definition - What does Googol mean?

A googol is a mathematical term that represents a very large numeric value of 10 to the 100th power, or the factorial of 70 (70!). It is written as the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. The Google search engine and brand are derived from the googol term.

A googol is also referred to as ten (10) duotrigintillion, ten-thousand (10,000) sexdecillion and ten (10) sexdecilliard.

Techopedia explains Googol

In an attempt to name a large number with 100 zeros, Googol was coined by Milton Sirotta, the nephew of Edward Kasner, an American mathematician. Although the term does not relate to most mathematical calculations, googol is often used to explain and compare elements with very large numeric values, sizes and quantities.
