This is the first time I came to know about an image search where input is image. so does that mean this is an invention from Google. or did it exist already?
and how does THIS type of image search works?

TinEye searches for images similar to the one you post.
Google Goggles is different. It tries to recognise what the picture contains and does a web search for that. For example, if you post a picture of text, it will use OCR and search for that text string. If you take a picture of a landmark, it will search for the landmark name. If you take a picture of a product logo, it will search for the product name.
