Perhaps GoogleGuy can answer this question. What was the very first document indexed by Google? Is it still active?

Why ask GoogleGuy?

Spend $ 2.50 and get your answer directly from google [answers.google.com]. :)

I think it was "hello-world.html" and, being the mother of all authoritative sites (MOAAS), it now has a PR of 11. :)

I'd bet on something like [localhost...]

You don't test with complex data :-)

I don't think Stanford does much linking out. Starting with DMOZ would be the way to go.

However, they probably tried it on some local page first.

If the guys had any sense of history, they would have indexed [info.cern.ch...] first as a tribute to Tim Berners-Lee. But I don't know if it was still online when Google first started indexing.

(See: [w3.org...] for the last archived version of that page)

I bet its the index page of google.com (or whatever it was called before, probably http:/google.stanford.edu)

And probably it has caused an infinte loop so they had to kill the process, modify it, and start over again.

What else has changed, pmkpmk? :)

I don'w know the first page indexed, but I do think this is close to the first usenet complaint:

[google.com...]
