Today Google celebrates their 12th anniversary and have informed the world in their usual style – a rather fitting birthday cake logo on their homepage.

The subtle announcement made today by the goliath of search certainly clears up what has been much confusion over the past 12 years relating to the true anniversary of the website. Of note is that in previous years Google have been known to celebrate their birthday on the 7th September.

Over the past 12 years, both the face, functionality and size of Google has changed so to celebrate their birthday this year, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane:

Happy Birthday Google!

In recent years the visual aspect of Google has taken a large backstep from the early years whilst we have seen the introduction of an increasing array of functions, most notably the introduction of personalised search and more recently the launch of Google Instant.

From everyone at Receptional, happy birthday Google!
