Google 2001 Index

In the Honor of Google’s 10th Birthday the company has posted the complete contents of Google’s oldest working archive, in this case from 2001.

So this is a nice way to figure out how Google was in 2001 and how web has advanced in the last couple of years. For instance I did a search for “Student Loan” and they only have 932,000 results..but if you perform the same search in Google’s current index, you would get over – 13,600,000 results!

A lot of the original Web pages that existed back in 2001 has changed and most of the deep links aren’t working anymore. But if you are really interested to see how a website looked in the past you can always use Archive.org.

This is how Yahoo looked like in 1996 –
