forget a few importants :
and a really weird one :
I believe it is possible to create those entries by linking to a page that doesnt exist. eg. yourmom.google.com
for example, you will notice that this search returns stupidb*tch.google.com
although there are no backlinks...
This reminds me of how everyone thought Senator Palpatine was a good guy, but really he was doing a bunch of sneaky crap in the background to become more powerful. Eventually he declared himself emperor and ruled the galaxy.
I sure hope Google doesn't do that.
YOUR RIGHT! with all those billions from they're getting the could rule the galaxy,
(insert evil laugh here)
I'm not too surprised. Google needs to become a portal in order to compete with yahoo. I do think it's interesting that most of these google subdomains have to do with search and aggregating information such as phonebook, travel, weather, and webquotes. Yahoo has gone beyond this by offering subscription and shopping related services such as auctions, dating, financing, and autos.
With Google now an email provider maybe they will try to become an Internet provider as well in the future.
in order to become a portal google will have to lose it minimalistic look which it has become famous for. The average yahoo msn lycos portals are just a mess they throw tones of the latest content at you hoping that some of it will interest you.
I've been nagging for a MyGoogle here for about 3 years - I'd love it if there were some personalization. They sure could portalize but done differently from the others.
>>maybe they will try to become an Internet provider as well in the future.
I wish they'd buy AOL & ODP; that would sure make things interesting.

Yes it would make things interesting, but it won't happen.
Who, exactly, would want to buy AOL?
Could they even afford to do that?
At the end of the day someone is gong to take over the world. Frankly I think Google would be a good supreme leader.
|Who, exactly, would want to buy AOL? |
A lot of people! Not only is AOL the biggest internet provider, but one of the best known names.
Heh heh it's fun to play:
"You are not authorized to view this page."
" Looking for the Google Search Appliance? You're getting warmer..." - Looks to be the URL error for the search appliance.
Goes to Google.
Goes to Google.
I never realised that keywordhere;qos.google.com is the I'm feeling lucky link.
portal + the worlds leading ad serving company
portal = maximizing per click revenue
ad serving = revenue without owning supply chain
Anyone know what this one is for?
Got that by peeking at their robots.txt file
Maybe it's for microsoft windows.
There is also another neat search option I found from their robots.txt file which I had never heard of before or seen referenced anywhere.
[google.com...] - apparently that searches across government websites. Here is the full list:
I see their robots.txt and been messing with some that stuff for a little while.
Maybe Google just has a sense of humor...
Uhhh.. no. If you bother to look at special searches under "more" you'd see that those have been around for ages: [google.com...]
austrians at google!
i can't believe it. "grias di" is austrian and southern german dialect for the german "grüss dich", which means "i great you" or simply hello. no doubt some austrians or bavarians working at google ;-)
 just noticed that anyword.qos.google.com works. what a pity, i liked the austrians-theory ;-( [/edit]
