From simple text results, to blended results, and, finally, the Knowledge Graph, Google has gone through a number of transformations since its 1998 inception. Overdrive Interactive has created a visual timeline of the search engine’s evolution, which we call the Google Gallery. This presentation is available as a free PDF from Overdrive's website, at http://www.ovrdrv.com/google-gallery.
The gallery illustrates examples of 54 different types of Google search results, including:
- The basic text-only results page
- Blended results with autocomplete
- Universal search
- The Knowledge Graph, Knowledge Panel and OneBox
- Flight times, movie listings, event schedules, math equations
- And much more!
