'Googlle': Google Logo Spelled Wrong To Celebrate 11th Anniversary (PHOTOS)

**See photos below**

Why is the Google logo spelled wrong? On the Google homepage, the Google doodle appears to have a typo: it reads "Googlle" instead of "Google." Engineers getting sloppy?

Google is celebrating its 11th anniversary today and decided to commemorate the event with a doodle that references the number 11 by adding another "l", to create "Googlle." (See photo below)

For Google's 10th birthday, they had this logo (see photo below):

According to the Guardian, there's some confusion about the exact date of Google's birthday:

Last year, Google put up its 10th birthday logo on 2 September and, according to its Wikipedia entry, it was incorporated as a privately held company on 4 September 1998.
