The other day we began our countdown of the top 100 Google moments of the past ten years. Today we continue our countdown with items 50-75.
Our top 100 list included memorable events from Google's ten years of existence and a few pre Google launch in 1998. The world is such a different place than it was ten years ago. We've seen the rise of the Internet, the rise of terrorism, record gas prices and the start of a new form of marketing known as search marketing? (OK it may have been around prior to 1998, but the term "search engine marketing" has become mainstream only in recent years.)
