Earth Day was this past Sunday and there was a ton of news and blog buzz on the search engines being creative with their engines on that day however, there were no threads in our forums. Today, I finally noticed a thread at DigitalPoint Forums about the special day. The thread creator notes which engines made an effort for Earth Day and which did not - also asking you to comment on which you find to be your favorite.1) Google google-earth-06.gif

2) Yahoo! yahoo-earth-06.gif

3) Ask.com ask-earth-06-s.gif View Large Image

3) Dogpile dogpile-earth-06.gif

4) MSN (no change)

Google.com does its standard Google Doodle and link to a search. Yahoo! does a simple but nice logo change, but links to a special, protal-like, earth day page. Ask.com redoes the whole homepage, most drastic change - like they did with St. Patrick's Day and links to a search. Dogpile, goes nuts as normal. MSN does nothing, as normal.

I liked change of dogpile. It reminds of me nature in the busy urban life. Yahoo's change is too small to notice. Dogpile's image is very pretty too and it is a pleasing scene because of the use of green color.

I really like the change in ask because giving a picture of earth is really cool. And it made me think that everything in that place got to be clean and friendly otherwise we have no pace to go.
