Why? To let people know what is going, not only about UFO's, but ghosts, taos hum, and other phenomenons showing that there is still much stuff to be known, and in some cases, something is wrong. Like UFO's.

At least thats my point of view.

i agree, why link to a website that covers so much. If they wanted us to be directed to UFO's then why not be more specific with the link?

Its because the #1 google trend is "unexplained phenomenon". I just hope this tells our government that we want to know - and can handle the truth.

Seriously guys do we really have to look for hidden meanings everywhere? It is just a hot topic marketing strategy to increase usage and from what I can tell.. it is working.

Well, as a marketing stunt it’s working anyway: dozens of sites and fora are discussing todays google logo, which carries the name go_gle.gif by the way. Normally the name of their logo refers to the occasion why they place it and has it got an alt tag to it. Not this time, seems like they created their own little ‘unexplained mystery’ (the logo) and link it to the search term ‘unexplained mysteries’.

The coded tweet '1.12.12 25.15.21.18 15 1.18.5 2.5.12.15.14.7 20.15 'All your O are belong to us', apparently refers to ‘all your bases are belong to us’, a slogan from the game ‘zero wing’ that had a hype thing going on on the net: en.wikipedia.org...

The Exeter UFO Festival might be a possible reason why the logo appears today, also it’s exactly 22 years ago the Voyager 1 was launched. The popularity of the search term ‘unexplained mysteries’ may have something to do with it and, no doubt, the marketing effect is working well.

I’d say the google designers/programmers are having fun today

3 pages.... about a damn logo?! Desperation I say... so when they had a telephone in their logo it was a conspiracy to make us all spend loads more money calling for no apparent reason? -.-

I think it's fun that Google changes their logo all the time, a simple page with simple entertainment.

Its really NOT better. Not at all. Its crap.


Use this site to search using both engines and compare for yourself: www.bing-vs-google.com.... Search on any word and you will get much more relevant hits on Google than you do on Bing.


thanks for the link, I tried it and got 4 results on Bing and 155 results on Google for my recent search of "load ycc fail" error.

That's a big difference!

I noticed the UFO shows up on the Google homepage in the USA now too.

Something I didn't notice until it got pointed out to me...

The top of the Google search page is missing after you search for something.

No doubt - predictive programming - actually I have no idea. Its pretty cool though. Probably nothing, but just when we stop questioning things is right when we'll get bit on the proverbial "butt".

Bing is far superior in both design, search relevance and interactivity.

Interactivity is where Bing really put the hammer to Google. Check it out go to Bing and see a beautiful random background that allows you to hover over certain areas to find information.

Google will be struggling over the coming months to compete with this new search engine. I imagine Microsoft will slam out a huge marketing budget especially after their deal with yahoo went through. Also Microsoft can simply make Bing a function in the next operating system.

So this interactive UFO you see is Googles response to all that in a way.

You will see Google playing catchup over the coming weeks making improvements and launching surprises like this UFO I am sure.

More results does not mean better results. So what if Google has been scouring the web for years saving every single site it finds.

"Hits" is not the proper term. Its called SERPS (Search Engine Result Pages). More results does not mean better results.

I for one think Google can take their monopoly and shove it deep so I am happy to see Bing kick them in the face.

Well it seems it has gone from the Google Australia site so tomorrow everything is back to normal. Guess it really was nothing; if it was something significant you'd think they would keep it up.

And why was this not a credible thread? You are wrong, google does not just put random images on their logo without explanation.

Usually, the image would be for some kind of special occasion and an explanation would be there when you hover over the lgo with your mouse.

If the thread is not credible then why are you even adding to it with your comment?
