Google on 9/11

Google System reminds us what Google looked like today 5 years ago after planes hit the World Trade Center. Google about that day reported:

Among the top 200 queries on Tuesday, news-related searches were 60 times greater than the number of news-related searches conducted the previous day.

More than 80 percent of the top 500 queries conducted on Tuesday were related to the terrorist attacks.

At 6:51 a.m. on Tuesday, more than 6,200 queries for “cnn” were conducted on Google. Between 6:26 a.m. and 7:06 a.m., the number of searches for “cnn” averaged approximately 6,000 queries per minute.

Other searches with instant peaks that day were “Nostradamus”, “World Trade Center,” “Osama bin Laden,” “Pentagon” and “American Airlines.” Richard W. Wiggins compiled more information on Google that day.

Do you still remember what you did 5 years ago?
