Google evolutionA few weeks ago I did a large post on the past five years of history of Google: That was a cool exercise as I got to remind yourself and organize in my mind lots of Google changes I was lucky to witness (I know that sounds like I am very old btw).

Now, in the course of the above research, I came across lots of screenshots which allowed me to create these two slideshows. You don’t need the wayback machine to witness Google evolution now. It’s all there:

Home Page Evolution

What’s your favorite year??

Search Results Evolution

Link to your screenshots, name the year and I’ll include them in the slideshow!

So what’s next? We’ll see but it has been a fun ride so far! No offense taken; no matter how much we grumble, we still love you, Google, and admire your founders and team, just be easy on us 😉

  1. Great slideshows Ann 🙂
    These two slideshows reminds me of the better days when Google was much simpler. My favorite year is 1999 when I started with researching on Internet.

  2. Excellent post! Those days are good, when Google was not so filled up with stuff you don’t really need while searching but it’s a fact that everything evolves and that’s for the best, I think. User’s should also evolve and embrace the change.
