When is Google's birthday? Surely Google knows. You do know, right, Google?

Last Updated: September 27, 2016

Google is now officially an adult. The internet giant is celebrating its 18th birthday on Tuesday with an animated Doodle shown to web browsers around the world.

The company, founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1998, traditionally marks its birthday on the Google homepage on September 27.

However, not even Google seems to really know when it was formed. Since 2006, it has celebrated its birthday on September 27, but the year before that, had it as September 26.

Google is an American multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products that include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, and software.

Are you just celebrating today because it’s the anniversary of the first time you put up your own birthday doodle, this day in 2002?


I mean, come on: your corporate mission is “to organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”. You know what they say: if you don’t even know your own birthday, you probably aren’t very good at organising information.
