"Google and yahoo where both projects of stanford university"
One other thing that always makes me think...
Google was still in development and the founders where trying to seek out clients for their search technology. At this point they had little interest in becoming a search engine. One of the people they contacted was David Filio, (co founder of yahoo)who activly encouraged them to create a search engine company, and agreed the technology was sound. He also added...
"When it's fully developed and scalable", he told them, "let's talk again".
Even back in 1998 yahoogle was being conceived.
I think instead of giving all of us *Cake*, Google should take away all the PR0 blessings from websites owned by members of Webmasterworld - and give all the (penalty sites) a fresh start.
I think, that would surely make it a *Great* Birthday.

I find it astonishing how the other search engines did not react appropriately.
I would guess Bill Gates will have to admit he really missed out on this one.
Well done Google and lets hope there is still room for another "quality upstart"!
Fair play to the Google team.
They've had plenty of chances to sail (or rather sell) their results down the river; instead they just keep on getting stronger.
Hence Congrats, are due to the google team for their past, current policies, and hopefully there future policies will stay inline with free submission, and listings.
