I cannot believe ten years ago today was the day of such terror that hit New York and all Americans. Today, on September 11, 2001, is a day no one will forever forget. Everyone I know, remembers what they were doing, where they were and the events of the day.

To remember 9/11, this year, Google, Bing, Yahoo, Dogpile, Ask.com and other search engines have special logos, themes and messages to remember the day and the Americans lost that day.

Google has a small black ribbon with text that reads "Remembering September 11th" linking to a blog post.

Bing has a very nice home page theme:

Bing 9/11 2011

Yahoo made their whole top bar black, never seen that before from Yahoo:

Yahoo 9/11 2011

Ask.com:

Ask.com 9/11 2011

Dogpile, they even change the O in their logo:

Dogpile 9/11 2011

The search industry has typically done special logos or themes to remember the horrific day. Here is the 2010, 2009, 2006. I do not have the other years here.

Now, a lot of you ask why not a Google logo? Google does not do logos for sad occasions.

Finally, this is an image of the Google home page on 9/11 ten years ago, when many news sites couldn't handle the traffic of those all rushing to the internet to find out what was happening...
