    Google Circa 2001

    This is REALLY cool:
    Google
    In honor of Google's 10th Anniversary they have brought back their oldest available index, from 2001.

    A search for Cyclones yields 186,000 results:
    Cyclones - Google Search
    Today that same search yields over 5 million results... Back then we weren't number 1 for Cyclones, but now we are:
    Cyclones - Google Search

    Re: Google Circa 2001

    I can't believe it's been so long... but I've been using Google since 1998 at least. I moved to Iowa in 99, and I know for sure I've accessed that site before then.

    Searching for people is kind of fun. The results for Barack Obama and Paris Hilton have both changed quite a bit.

    Re: Google Circa 2001

    I search my name and here is what come up.

    #1 Photopoint-I was listed as a user of this site which went out of business overnight and I lost all my pics that I didn't have backed up.

    #2 Fitness sports
    It had my times for Red Flannel, Capital Pursuit, and a few other races from the late 90's.


    Pretty interesting

    My name comes up with 39 results now.

    You must have a VERY unique name if it only comes up with 39 results. Mine comes up with 436,000.
