Yup. With Google half disappeared in snow :)
If you pee on snow it melts.
Never Eat Yellow Snow.
Another Google Doodle [google.com]? What's under the snow?
|Yup. With Google half disappeared in snow :) |
So are some of the sites :-)
LOL - I wonder who the two confused looking snowmen represent :)
I'm danged sure one of the confused snowmen
|LOL - I wonder who the two confused looking snowmen represent |
The big snowman scratching his head represents all the webmasters who are wondering why the search results have been so bad lately.
The smaller snowman in the back represents the people at Google who don't know what to do about it and are throwing their hands up in desperation.
If you click on the logo you get a page with two numbers.
1. = the actual logo
Any clues from this?
Nah, the bigger snowman is wondering where his
karaoke machine e-comm site got buried while his
SEO friend is trying to cheer him up by belting
out this holiday favorite ....
I'm dreaming, of a rel e vant Google
Just like the one we used to know
Where the serps were glistening
with traffic whistling
before the knobs froze up in snow
> Any clues from this?
Stay tuned, it'll take that snow a day or three to melt
away. The 2? is just the placeholder for the Ghost of Logo Yet To Come.
Maybe the snow isn't melting but piling up and pretty soon Google will be gone.

Snow? Not spam?
Very funny kevinpate! :)
I love these Politically Correct logos - they always fill me with the happy cheer of Christmas! ;)
I must be totally blind to anything on the Google home page besides the search box.
I've been searching on G here and there throughout the day, in fact, just left there after doing a couple of personal searched - and I didn't notice a thing and if it not for this thread I'm not sure if I'd ever would have.

perhaps Brin and Page wondering why the bad press 3-4 months prior to an IPO?
I thought they were renaming the engine to "Cooole" :)
I assumed the logo was allegorical: with the first confused snowman represented the webmasters of the world; and the second confused snowman representing the surfers. And Google not in a snowbank, but actually sinking into the backgound colour of the page.
There goes my silly imagination again :)
Why is www.google.com.au showing snow?
Can someone explain why an Australian Website thinks it's snows at Christmas?
It would be more realistic showing a bushfire for christmas - thats got more meaning here than snow!
Sometimes the Americancentric Universe gets on my goat!
Happy Christmas anyway :)
>>What's under the snow?
It is a curious doodle [google.com]. Almost as if GG came up with the concept. Who knows what's under the snow, but you can't say it's been a boring run. Melting snow and GoogleGuy:
|Or, as time goes by, people may find that this whole time we've been working on infrastructure and algorithm improvements that will make search even better. |

Maybe a logo with Google going up in flames would be a little too much? Just a thought from a whingeing Pom ;)
>Can someone explain why an Australian Website thinks it's snows at Christmas?
ROFL. ;) Yeah, today is the day of the solstice. Which down under means it is the first day of summer.
Solstice = Longest Day of the Year
|Can someone explain why an Australian Website thinks it's snows at Christmas? |
Because this [thefreshketch.com] is what it was like today less than 200 miles from the plex.
shameless self promotion
|Australian Website thinks it's snows at Christmas? |
same goes with google.co.nz, it maybe because Brin and Page were too busy thinking of a new "infrastructure" that they forgot there is summer in Australasia ;)
>Solstice = Longest Day of the Year
Main Entry: sol·stice
Pronunciation: 'säl-st&s, 'sOl-, 'sol-
Etymology: Middle English, from Old French, from Latin solstitium, from sol sun + -stit-, -stes standing; akin to Latin stare to stand -- more at SOLAR, STAND
Date: 13th century
1 : either of the two points on the ecliptic at which its distance from the celestial equator is greatest and which is reached by the sun each year about June 22d and December 22d
2 : the time of the sun's passing a solstice which occurs about June 22d to begin summer in the northern hemisphere and about December 22d to begin winter in the northern hemisphere
Both the longest and shortest days of the year occur at the solstice points. However, at the poles it is either the mid-point of day or night. At the poles, there is only one day a year. Half of the year the sun is up, half of the year it is below the horizon. Sunrise and sunset at the poles occurs at the equinoxes.

It's the tail-end of the autumnal rainy season in Jamaica... put a flood warning on the weather page this morning, actually, because of heavy rains. I'd liked to have seen the little snowmen, neck deep in water, floating downstream to Ocho Rios.
>perhaps Brin and Page wondering why the bad press 3-4 months prior to an IPO?
... almost exactly the same time that a certain company that is NOT A MONOPOLY (despite what several federal judges have said) but IS widely known for Astroturfing PR campaigns, decided to come out with a search engine of their own? And loudly announced THEY wouldn't buy Google if you offered it to them in a gift-wrapped bag?
Makes you wonder how many of the low-number "outspokenly disappointed" trolls in the Google forum are merely plastic blades in the Great Green Coverup?
<<Sometimes the Americancentric Universe gets on my goat!>>
Huh? I live in the US and it doesn't snow everywhere here in the winter either. It doesn't snow where I live. In fact, I've only been in the snow twice in my life. So, it's not Americancentric. It's biased towards cold places. Let's sue!
Here in America we say "gets my goat", but hey, that's just us;)
