Happy 11th Birthday, Goog11e. Nice Logo!

 

September 27th Google’s Birthday..

 

Happy Birthday Goog11e

Happy Birthday Goog11e


 
 

Hey did you noticed that today Google changed its logo to Goog11e,
to celebrate its birthday the company changed ‘L’ to ‘11′.

 
What’s interesting about the logo change is that Google’s (Google) official birthday is somewhat disputed: some often declare the company was born on September 15th 1997, the day the Google.com domain was registered. Meanwhile, Google filed for incorporation in September 1998: the papers were filed on September 4th, but Google has been known to celebrate on both September 7th and September 27th.
 

“Google opened its doors in September 1998. The exact date when we celebrate our birthday has moved around over the years, depending on when people feel like having cake”. In recent years, Google has taken to changing its logo on September 27th, meaning this has been taken as the Official Date.

 

Anyways, its Google birthday and lets see till how many years it’ll remain number one around the globe.

All the best Google (Y).

Yahoo has been struggling to turn its position as the world’s most popular website into profits. The portal is the first move of new boss Carol Bartz.

Rich Riley says, “Yahoo can remain at the centre of the web experience”

 
 
 
 
Partnerships:

The new portal, however, also has an unprecedented number of links to non-Yahoo websites, potentially taking traffic away from Yahoo’s sprawling network of news, weather, finance, email, messaging, and picture services and more.

In the UK, for example, the Yahoo website features top headlines from the Telegraph, Guardian and Daily Mail newspapers.

Since the beta version of the Yahoo website was launched in the UK, Yahoo has become the second-largest source of online traffic to the Telegraph’s website, said Mr Riley.

Yahoo is getting a share of the advertising revenue generated by this traffic to partners. Read more…
