'Don't Google Google, Googling Google is wrong', says Google

Google are wanting people to say 'Search on Google' rather than to google or googling because if to google becomes a verb in common use they can loose the ability to trademark the name as it become generic.

Right, ... let's all Alphabet it then!

(I don't know what that means, but if it costs them a trademark the joke's on them.)
