Google Fools' Day

Share this content:
It's almost that time of year again, when Google plays some prank on the (somewhat) unsuspecting masses with its annual April Fools' Day gag on its homepage.

Since 2000, Google has published one or more gags every year except 2001 and 2003.

Not only are they usually entertaining, but the yearly ritual has turned into a big marketing ploy for the company.

This year, there is a spate of articles on news sites and blogs about the possible upcoming gag, or even whether the ubiquitous company will do one since the national mood may not be up for a gag in the midst of a recession.

All this adds up to a ton of free publicity for Google, as if they needed it.
