Google's Birthday

Google's birthday is a common mystery that has become an internet meme as of 2016. In September 2016, search results for "When is Google's Birthday?" spiked due to the September 27th Google Doodle. Google's birthday is September 27th if taken common consensus on each year of its celebration. 


Google's main domain has celebrated its own inception on different days throughout the years causing large confusion on what its actual date of inception really is. In 2006, it celebrated its birthday on the 27th of September, but the year before, Google had celebrated it's birthday as September 26th, one day earlier. In 2004, Google's 6th Google Doodle went online on September 7 and in the year before that, it was September 8. [3][2] Google's first investment was in August 1998 to Google Inc. (which was not yet incorporated). The legal incorporation of Google would not come until 4 September 1998 in California.[3]
