Google’s 10th Birthday! (But what day?)

Googles 10th Birthday

Google's 10th Birthday

That’s right…this is Google’s 10th anniversary/birthday. Funny enough, nobody really knows the exact day, as quoted directly from Google’s Answer Pages: “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.”

TechCrunch offer’s their own theory in their article, Happy Tenth Birthday Google! When Are We Celebrating?

“Google is actually nearly 13 years old if you go by their own corporate history page: “By January of 1996, Larry and Sergey had begun collaboration on a search engine called BackRub, named for its unique ability to analyze the “back links” pointing to a given website.”

But if you go by when the domain name was registered, they’ll turn 11 on September 15.

However, the date Google celebrates as their birth month is September 1998. They celebrated on September 7, their date of incorporation, until 2005. Since 2005 (and also randomly in 2002), they’ve celebrated on September 27.”

If you have any other theories, I’d be glad to hear it. Google, at the age of 10 is already more successfull than I’ll ever be. YOU CAN FORGET GETTING A GIFT! All the best Google and thanks for your app’s!
