BBB12 MEPAIGE FAC FOR SALE Gogle Google Search I'm Feeling Lucky 28 Why is the homepage so plain? When Google was first launched, the founders knew barely enough HTML to create this very simple landing page, and certainly not enough for a fancy user interface. Ad space on the home page has been valued at $10 million dollars. Unfortunately, it's not for sale. And is likely to not be for sale in the foreseeable future. The sparsity has become part of Google's brand; the founders insist the words on the homepage do not exceed 28. The home page can also be viewed in Klingon, the fantastical language from Star Trek Google estimates the "I'm feeling lucky" button has lost approximately $100 Million in ad revenue, but execs refuse to remove it as users prefer to have the option, despite the infrequency of its use. The first Google Doodle originated as a Vacation announcement; the founders had to find SOME ways to let people know they'd be out of the office at Burning Man.
