Google is celebrating 10 years as search engine and as a little treat they’ve released their index from 2001!

It’s fully search able and it’s interesting to see which sites ranked ten years ago when the algorithm wasn’t as advanced.

– The results for SEO have nothing to do with SEO as we know it knower days.

– ranked number 1 for search engine optimisation, that now re-directs to Receptional.

– Best of all Wikipedia was just starting, and didn’t rank number 1 for wikipedia never mind any other key phrases.

So head over to for a little play.
