"Strange Google Links"


The other day while I was procrastinating from doing things I should have been, I found several interesting google links I have never seen before...


http://www.google.com/intl/xx-hacker/why_use.html

http://www.google.com/intl/xx-hacker/

This one is strange, everything is in "hacker speak" , and all the links work and keep that same encoding of the words...


http://www.google.com/3.html

This one is just old. It makes reference to indexing 3 billion pages. Rumor has it they are way passed that number.


http://www.google.com/lucky.html

Reminiscent of the old google, I'm not really sure what this one is.


http://www.google.com/default.reg

http://www.google.com/google_rsearch.reg

These two are just strange because they are registry files for internet explorer settings. I wouldn't expect to see that in the google root directory.


http://www.google.com/ig/currentcomm/current_links_module.html

This one is only interesting because of the reference to the online file backup account...


http://www.google.com/ig/current

This is funny because this looks like their new customized home page...


http://www.google.com/imghp?hl=km&tab=di&ie=UTF-8

This is another interesting encoding of the google page


http://www.google.com/sitemap.xml

Maybe this isn't a big deal, but I was surprised to see this xml sitemap in their root.


http://www.google.com/mozilla/google.xul2

I have never seen this before, so I thought it was strange. Looks like it is for a mobile device or something...


http://www.google.com/ie_rsearch.html

This one looks like what shows up in the IE sidebar at times. Maybe thats what the above one was for too?


http://code.google.com/webstats/2005-12/elements.html

If you like numbers, I just thought this was an interesting break-down of the pages they index and elements of those pages.


http://www.google.com/moms/

http://www.google.com/moms01/

http://www.google.com/googlefriends/may1998.html

http://www.google.com/translate_t

http://www.google.com/googleviewer/loading.html

http://www.google.com/ig/resetprefs.html

These don't really do anything, just interesting or strange pages I found.


update:

Here are some more weird languages, thx Tekai for this

http://www.google.com/intl/xx-elmer/

http://www.google.com/intl/xx-piglatin/
