When is Google’s Birthday? The domain of the company was launched in 1997 and now the company has become the most important part of our lives. Today you all have noticed this image on the homepage of Google.
It is celebrating its 17th birthday on 27th September with Google Doodle showing a plastic PC which was its logo in 1998, and also a lava lamp.
Since 2006, it has celebrated its birthday on 27th September before that it celebrated its birthday on 26th September. While 6th and 5th birthday were celebrated on 7th and 8th September respectively. But it’s actually birthday dates back to 4th September 1998. But now it has been fixed for the date of 27th only.
The 17th Birthday will appear everywhere except in the USA, as per the Doodle Blog. This date may change next year as the search engine separates into different groups all under the umbrella of “Alphabet”. However, their first office started at one of the rooms of Stanford, it has now become a search engine giant.
Let’s go through their achievements in the last 17 years: –
