What On Earth Is A Google Doodle?

Some of these logos are interactive animations.

The logos are designed by artists all over the world to celebrate events and honor famous people. I enjoy trying to figure out what the event is from what is presented in the logo scene.

You can click on the logo to read what they are honoring and who provided the art.

History Of Google

A search engine known as "Back Rub" was developed back in 1996 by Sergey Brin and Larry Page. This search engine was different from all the others current searching the web because it had the ability to discover back links.

That little search engine had something none of the others did and people soon recognized the potential of this new technology. That search engine would soon be recognized around the world as "Google".

The Google search engine would be conducting about 3 million searches per day by September 1999.

The Birth Of Google Doodle

The first Google doodle appeared in 1998 when the Google founders Larry and Sergey put a stick man drawing into their Google logo to indicate that they would be "out of the office" while they attended a festival in Nevada.

The next doodle to appear on the Google homepage would be in 2000 for Bastille Day and things just seemed to naturally take off from there.

Google users enjoyed the doodle concept so much that these images become a rather frequent new feature of the Google homepage.

      @VanessaPrieto: That sounds fabulous! I am not a great artist, that stick figure is drawn by me lol. If you decide to try to make a Google Doodle, I wish you the best of luck.

      I think it would have to be something artsy to reflect who I am. Perhaps something to celebrate a particular artist? Think Picasso, Mondrian, Britto. Visually interesting with real personality. :)

      @takkhisa: I couldn't agree with you more. There will always be newer guys out there trying to outdo Google, but I do believe that Google with persevere through all of it.

      @Lady Lorelei: Google is by far my favourite search engine. I've heard of many people using Bing, but I have yet to try it, never thought of using it for definitions.

      I used to Google everything. I still prefer the Google search for most of my research scouting but I like Bing for finding definitions.
