Ugh, what can you say after months of inactivity on the blog?, I think little , So without further dedicate myself to write about what the title of the Post describes.
I've written before in other previous posts, as this pot of something that personally always caught my attention, and I sure you had noticed already that the logo of Google is not always the same, it is dynamic, and often , is amended to refer to various events, important events or any circumstances which they consider relevant, of which there have been many over the years , some real works of art .
And that is today's post, the logo that recently we could see on the front page of Google , one of the most curious and dynamic of all time no doubt, and it was dedicated to the famous video game Pacman or Pac Man to so many games I've played, and that certainly could play in Google's own page on the logo created for this purpose.
And after this short introduction of Logo enjoyed enjoy the Pacman Pac Man:
May 22, 1980 - Launch of video game Pac-Man
I also commented that Google usually changes its logo on any significant event occurs, or takes place the celebration of an important event in the development of humanity, or some other circumstance worthy of mention, and that over the years has been many logos , some true works of art .
And that is today's post, the logo we could see yesterday's home page Google , one of the most curious of all time no doubt, and it was dedicated to the birthday of Samuel Morse died in 1872, and born 27 April, 1791, best known as the inventor of the telegraph and the "Morse code" that was developed by Alfred Vail in 1835 while working with Samuel Morse in the invention of the telegraph.
And after this short introduction enjoy this magnificent logo:
April 27, 1791 - Birthday of Samuel Morse
You can see some other logo on this pot .
Long ago I wanted to be writing about something that I love about Google, which may seem a mere detail, it's funny and I like: Your logo.
And, as I suppose ye shall have laid down, the logo of Google is not always the same, it is dynamic, and often is modified to refer to different events.
Google usually modify your logo on any significant event occurs, or takes place the celebration of an important event in the development of humanity, or some other circumstance worthy of mention. Obviously, over the years there have been many logos , some true works of art and it would be almost impossible to cover everyone, so the reason for this post is to review those that have come out recently and I personally have liked to see which appear to you and whether or not coincidís me in her beauty, .
And without further ado, let's see logos recently caught my attention most of the celebrations or events that Google considered appropriate to review:
May 15, 2008 - 112 anniversary of the first film screening in Spain (1896)
16 May 2008 - 48th anniversary of the invention of the laser
June 6, 2008 - Commemoration of the 409 birthday of Spanish painter: Diego Velázquez
What do you like more?
Has recently released a fact, which may never have noticed, and I personally called me tremendously attention.
This is the little-known cost of the home page button on Google :
"Better" or "I'm feeling lucky":
And according to the American Public Media's Marketplace this button, you supposed to Google, a cost of 110 million dollars per year, a figure not negligible, more so when it is a button that although almost everyone knows of its existence, only used by 1% of Google users., or what is the same, only 1% of Google searches are made using the button.
Where does that cost?. Those millions of $ that Google stop sign coming from the actual operation of that button, because if you have not ever used, making that button is that when performing a search on Google if you press the button "I'm Feeling Lucky" takes you directly to the page that ranks first in the ranking of the search results on Google, so stop showing conceptual advertising that appears in the results page using a search normal and therefore the possibility of Google to get that advertising revenues.
So the question that may have one now, is: Why keep that button?. Certainly in the beginning, the cost to keep perhaps not very high, but considering that in recent years Google has increased considerably its advertising revenue, we assumed an increasing cost to maintain that button, when it really does not provide an increase value for the company, tangibly speaking.
For me, the key for which that button is there despite the cost that Google supposed to keep it, is found in the subjective value and brand image that button brings, even that, a single button.
And is that the button has become a kind of icon of Google, and it is there since the emergence of search engine back in 1998, and me personally, I would rarely see the Google page without the button being the google page and is minimalist in itself. That nothing would happen, because users would notice, but would continue to use the browser, totally agree, but for me it would not be original Google page.
We'll see if Google thinks the same, and we still see the button for much longer, or disappears some day soon, betting allowed ...........
