Today's "Bunsen Burner" logo is interactive and people could get distracted playing with it. I wonder if that distraction might also be a factor, even more than wondering if you are on the right page for a Google search.

I'm somewhat surprised that a significant fraction of users still use the Google home page. I have been typing search queries into a box in my browser for years. I only visit the Google home page when somebody tells me they have a nifty logo.

|Is this my hallucination alone or do you notice this phenomenon too? |
Now that you bring it up, we can watch today's data and report back here. Can you easily give us a list of some recent past logo days, so we can check historical data, too?

Dates of past logos are available here: [google.com...]

February 8 was the Jules Verne "20,000 Leagues" logo - very interactive and distracting. I checked a couple of sites and saw no noticeable effect for that day, but any effect may be specific to the type of query involved. I'll keep digging as I get the chance.

I also see a very predictable pattern (lower conversions) on these "logo" days as well.

Nobody running ads for Robert Bunsen today?

This youtube video [youtube.com...] proves that people are fixed more on the Google Doodles than the search engine. Cute, but totally worthless.

119th anniversary of the first documents ice cream sundae and once again, poor traffic and sales.
Does anyone really care about these Google Doodles? Do they really add value for what the appear to take away in traffic?

Must just be my hallucination. Another stupid Google Doodle today and zero sales.
