Google Celebrates 11 Years With Special Logo

Visit the Google home page today and you might think you’re seeing double.

To celebrate their 11th birthday, Google have created a special logo that includes two “l”s, representing the number 11. As far as holiday logos go, it’s pretty understated and it will be interesting to see how many people notice it.

Now the world’s most popular search engine, Google had very humble beginnings, famously launched by two Stanford University students in the garage of a mate’s house. Prior to it’s official launch in 1998, the search engine was called BackRub due to the way the newly developed algorithm used backlinks to determine the ranking of search results.

View an interactive timeline of Google’s milestones from 1998 to 2009.

Happy Birthday Google!
