Google or Fun ?

Is this Google or Something else ?

1. Google Mirror [elgooG] - elgooG is a mirror image (a flipped around image version) of the Google search engine. The search page and all results are displayed in reverse. The site is called the "Google mirror" as a parody of the term mirror in computing, which usually refers to a copy or backup of another website. The site was created by a group called All Too Flat, who put up various comedy and satire pages on their website. Google was not involved in the creation of elgooG... more

elgooG is a bit different. elgooG, which is Google spelled backwards, is a mirror image of the Google Web site

Yes. elgooG is a parody site designed and hosted by All Too Flat, a parody and comedy Web site.

Although the site is intended as a joke, it has been maintained for several years and is periodically updated to reflect changes in the Google Web site. Search results in elgooG are pulled from the actual Google search engine.

Please note that search query must be entered in reverse (example)

2. Toogle - Toogle is a Text version of Google's Image Search. Currently it creates images out of the very term that was used to fetch those images, later we will endeavor to create images out of the search terms entered by users past and present. But for now please, go play.

Obviously this site borrows heavily from Google's own layout and design, but I hope that they do not feel that this is competition and take it in the lighthearted way it was intended... more

Text version of Google's Image Search. See how does it show image of "James Bond"

3. Google Hacked - What's this ? Is Google hacked ?

4. Bill Gate's Google - Microsoft with Google Search.

5. Google Translation Tool: Type "my mom is cool and nice" into the translate text area, without the quotes, select to translate from English to Spanish, and submit.

Now, take the returned text, copy and paste it back into the translate text area, and select to translate it from Spanish to English.

The result will probably make you laugh.

Google + Yahoo

Google - Yahoo Combined Search

GahooYoogle is a tool that allows you to use both search engines at the same time.

When you type in your related search words, GahooYoogle will give you the results from Google and Yahoo in a split screened frame. What this means, is that you can look at both search engine results at the same time to find out the best and most relevant search find. This is pretty interesting in the fact that you can more or less compare the different priorities of search results on both Google vs. Yahoo and based on your needs, you may be able to find the one you like the best. For example, I did a search on “Yahoo” and found that the Yahoo search engine displayed more of Yahoo’s products whereas Google’s results displayed more of Yahoo’s news on the front pages... more

2. GaHoOgle

This is basically a combined search of yahoo and google. Query entered in search box will be displayed in a split screen as shown below. It still has options for choosing other search engines for left side as well as right side of spit window. Other search engines are MSN and AskJeeves. One can easily compare the ability of these search engines. For example for the same search of "gahoogle", yahoo gave 87 result in 0.50 sec, where as google find 57 results in 0.10 sec. This search is made on 20th Feb, 2007.

Below is a Msn-Ask Jeeves results for the same search query.

Google Games

Game based on Google

1. GoogleWhack - The search for "The One"

This is a very interesting game which uses Google search engine. Googlewhack is a game to find two word combinations that result in only one
possible page in the Google search engine. This means one has to find a combination of two words which when entered in Google search, display only one single result.

For example, when we search for "chomskian bops", which is a combination of two words, produce a single result.

See the rules.
See the stack of such words.
Googlewhack is not sponsored or maintained by Google

2. Gwigle

An educational puzzle game that helps you use Google more effectively.

It is a game that asks you to guess the query by looking at the first search results. Of course, the search terms are blurred. The game, created by a Google employee, is multi-level and if you think the first levels are too easy, wait for the queries from Image Search, Google Maps and Google Calculator. It will be pretty difficult to guess the queries and the options are pretty limited. Good luck ... more

3. World war on Google Map

This game can be played with 2 -25 other online players. Online players randomly receive a set of countries with troop hitpoints based on real world population data.To play: attack neutral and enemy countries in an effort to try to take over the world. You have a 20% chance of receiving more troops when you overtake an enemy country. More features to come! (currently in public beta status).

4. Montage-a-Google

Montage-a-Google is a simple web-based application that uses Google's image search to generate a large gridded montage of images based on keywords (search terms) entered by the user. Not only an interesting way of browsing the net, it can also be used to create desktop pictures or even posters (see examples below - more coming soon).

5. Google Image Labeler

Google Image Labeler, a new feature of Google Image Search that allows you to label random images to help improve the quality of Google's image search results.

How to play ?

You'll be randomly paired with a partner who's online and using the feature. Over a 90-second period, you and your partner will be shown the same set of images and asked to provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see. When your label matches your partner's label, you'll earn some points and move on to the next image until time runs out. After time expires, you can explore the images you've seen and the websites where those images were found. And we'll show you the points you've earned throughout the session.

6. Guess-the-Google

An addictive little game related to Google's image search, on which you try to guess what the keyword was for the images displayed.

At the start of each round, a grid of 20 images will appear. All of these images match one keyword.

It's your goal to guess which word matches all these images. If you were doing an image search, what key word would you need to enter to get these images as a result ?

Type in the keyword you think is correct here and then click the GUESS button or press the ENTER key on your keyboard.

Wish you all the best for all games...
Cheers ...!!
