Tengo la frase:

I just don't see Microsoft and Yahoo, even with the new Bing search engine as its mascot, coming anywhere near Google with the kinds of innovations that make us all excited and Googly

¿Cómo se podría traducir esta palabra? Tiene traducción? fan de Google tal vez?

They are using a play on words. Instead of saying "all excited and giggly" they use "Googly" instead to describe how Google's innovations make people feel. Since it's a play on words it's not really translatable. It's like trying to translate a joke from English to Spanish; some things are just lost in translation. Just leave the sentence off at "excited" and don't translate the "and Googly" part. It will still get the point across, but without the "clever" play on words that the author uses.
