Google Gets Out Of Beta
From The Search Engine Report
Oct. 4, 1999
Google finally lost its "beta" moniker on September 21, with the new site featuring a cleaner look and a new "GoogleScout" related pages feature.
When you do a search, you'll see a little GoogleScout link appear at the end of each listing. Clicking on this brings up a list of other sites Google feels are similar to the site you selected.
Google says it also plans an index expansion to 200 million web pages, in the coming weeks. And for those statistic-loving types, the service say that it now averages about 65 searches per second at peak times and 3.5 million searches per day.
