A Weird Google Search Engine

I happened upon this weird and funky Google search engine site.

elgooG, which is Google spelled backwards, is a mirror image of the Google Web site. It is hosted by a popular parody and comedy Web site called All TooFlat.
Go to elgooG (http://elgoog.rb-hosting.de/index.cgi).Your search engine page will show up.


elgooG also features a "hcreaS elgooG" and an "ykcuL gnileeF m'I" button to mirror Google's Google Search and I'm Feeling Lucky buttons. It even has a link to a mirror of Google's Even More page listing Google services.The search box types right to left, and the results display mostly backwards. You can search for words either backwards or forwards.
For instance, lets search for Obama!

You get the results in backwards like this!
Although the site is projected as a joke, it has been maintained for quite a few years and is periodically updated to reflect the changes in the Google Web site. Search results in elgooG are pulled from the actual Google search engine, and then reversed using Python.In fact,some links lead directly to Google services, and others go to a mirror page.

How weird can this be! Well, but if some are having fun and enjoying the site, then, I guess it’s ok! :)
