The Linux penguin peeps from behind a CRT monitor displaying the first Google home page. Humming on its side is a server made of Lego bricks. Google looks back at its early days in its '17th birthday doodle'.

But the lingering question remains. Is September 27 Google's real birthday?

The selection of September 27 as Google's birthday seems to be a one of convenience than the actual date when the company was founded.

Google celebrated September 7 (the day when the company was incorporated) as its birthday till 2005. In 2005 Google changed the date to September 27 to make it coincide with the announcement of the record number of pages that the search engine was indexing.

For the record the domain google.com was registered on September 15, 1997.

Will Google's real birthday please stand up?

For its 16th 'birthday', Google had posted an animated doodle on its homepage. The doodle showed the six letters of the word Google as different characters with the letter G wearing a birthday hat. The 'senior' G - like a parent - marks the heights of O and L against a wall. O, who first gets excited on seeing that it has grown, immediately gets sombre as he notices that L is so much bigger than him.

On its 15th birthday last year, Google posted an interactive version of the pinata, a popular Mexican birthday party game.

In 2012, for its 14th birthday Google celebrated with a chocolate cake animated doodle with 14 candles on it and the Google logo etched on the cake. The cake then got covered in Google colours and the 14 candles rearranged themselves as tally marks to denote the number 14.

In 2011, when Google turned 13, Google doodled for itself a photograph that showed Google's 13th birthday celebrations. It had a cake on a table with 13 candles on it, and Google logo sat around the table in party hats while gifts and balloons added to the celebratory mood.
