Google Logo celebrates New Year and 25 years of TCP/IP

The right side Google logo not only celebrates the New Year but also 25 years of TCP/IP. The Ethernet cable is twisted into the shape of “2008&Prime.

If you go to Google’s homepage and click on the special logo that celebrates 25 years of TCP/IP and the New Year, you’ll be sent to the search results for [January 1 TCP/IP] and you should normally see a Wikipedia page as the top result. But the first page of Google‘s results has changed dramatically in the past hours and all the results are new: most of them are from spam sites, pages that discuss Google’s logo and quote from Wikipedia. Most notably, the top result is a Digg page that links to a newly-created blog with a meaningful address: january-1-tcp-ip.blogspot.com and a highly-optimized title: “January 1 tcp/ip”. Obviously, that blog hoped to take advantage of Google’s new logo and succeeded: the two top results are Digg pages that link to that site and they’re followed by that blog’s homepage and a post from the same blog.
