It’s hard to imagine life before Google and having a world of knowledge at your fingertips but it’s only been 15 years even though it seems like a lifetime. The company filed for incorporation on September 4, 1998 but officially launched on September 27, 1998.

Besides the Google doodle game which lets you take a few turns to see how many pieces of candy you can whack out of a piñata, Google also created an “easter egg” to celebrate its cakeday. Go to and type “Google in 1998” in the search bar for a blast from the past.
