    if you go to the google homepage, or if you search for something and go to a serp page, and you view page source, what is that language called? I was expecting to see html but that does not look like html at all

    I don't think so. just go to google's homepage and view source. holy shit, what in the hell??
    that doesn't look like php to me. and why would a page's source be php? wouldn't any php on the back end be converted to html on the front end, so you would never see the php?

    Its html, javascript and css. They also obfuscate a big portion of their page which is why it looks so hard.

    this.
    the page is almost entirely built by javascript. probably to make it harder to scrape.
