Great Earth Day Logo
Google is so creative at times!

Just saw the logo on Google celebrating Earth Day. Living in Montana, I can really "relate" to this tastefully done and nice looking logo!

Seems that #1 in the SERP is down for the moment. And I doubt that it is *my* link that gives them trouble. :) Guess that it can be a mixed blessing to be that close to Google's logo.

...and there was me thinking it must be the start of the fishing season...

yeah, but my colleague also thought it was world fish day... perhaps an illustrated globe would have been better?

My thoughts exactly. I did mention that this morning, but it didn't make it through pre-moderation for some reason.

The last time that they done some thing like this with their logo, the number one site was hit so hard they had to put a page up saying their site is unavailable due to being number one on Google and that they would have like Google to warn them first!

Wondering if they include their Google-logo-attraction-visitors-traffic numbers when presenting their performance data to the fincncial community prior IPO ;-)

Maybe they should consider a special IPO logo where folks can auction the initial share price:

I think they absolutely should. It's a bit irresponsible in my opinion.

I wonder how many millions of visitors google is sending that site, or at least trying. I bet there were expecting higher traffic for today, but not nearly that much.

If Google did give them a few days warning, what could they have done, maybe a server upgrade or stripped images off the site? No ordinary server would be able to handle that kind of traffic.

I like the guy who has an adwords ad up for some financial service.

It might be good to remember that there are differing opinions as to which day is the real Earth Day. Does this logo mean that Google have made their choice?

(The other option is Equinox.)

Yes, logo is great! Forced me to bump up my plans of getting my boat out of storage and wetting a line.
