Happy Birthday Google!

By Betsy Carpenter, Coordinator of Marketing & Strategic Partnerships

Yes, it has already been 10 years since the birth of the search engine king, Google. For many of us it is hard to remember a time before Google; back when everyone was greeted by “you’ve got mail.” Try to think of when Google only had 25 million pages indexed, when it wasn’t a member of the Merriam Webster’s dictionary, and to say “Google me” would more than likely deserve a hard slap! –Kinda hard, huh?

Care to reminisce with the beloved engine? Share some stories and a laugh? Be sure to visit Google’s 10th Birthday Page. Here you can scroll through an interactive timeline of their past 10 years, share your most memorable Googley stories, answer the question that everyone has an answer for, “How do you use Google?”, and forecast what is to come in the next 10 years!

In addition, Google is looking to give back on their birthday with the new "Project 10 to The 100" which challenges Googlers to think of a unique idea that would help as many people as possible. Five final ideas will be chosen all of which will receive $10 million from Google to fund them - A rather generous gift on your own birthday!

Celebrate however you’d like – one thing is for sure, Google – you’ve come a long way baby!
