Why is Google spelled wrong? (with two l’s: Googlle) To celebrate 11th Anniversary (Happy Birthday, Google!)


Google’s visitors today will notice something wacky with no explanation: Google’s logo is spelled with two l’s today. The reason for this oddity is that today Google is celebrating it’s 11th anniversary. Google became a privately held company on September 4, 1998, so this is a belated celebration.

The Google logo looks like it’s misspelled today, but the Google logo we’re used to is also a mispelling: it’s an adaptation of the word for 100 zeros, “googol.”

Happy Birthday, Google, don’t know how we ever got along without ya!
