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.
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
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.
There goes my silly imagination again :)
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.
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!
Maybe a logo with Google going up in flames would be a little too much? Just a thought from a whingeing Pom ;)
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.

... 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?
