My Very Own Google Birthday Logo

Google is now showing personalized birthday Google logos for you, me and everyone else out there. Well, not everyone. It depends on a few conditions:

(1) You have a Google Profile and; (2) You enter your birthday in your Google Profile and; (3) You visit on your birthday and; (4) You are logged into Google.

If you follow all 4 conditions, then you will see this logo on the Google home page on your birthday:

personalized happy birthday

In fact, Matt Cutts tweeted a link to one of the first people to spot this for their birthday and screen cast it. Check out Danny Brown's video and comments (by the way, happy birthday):

You should also know that when you mouse over the logo, an alternative text box comes up saying "Happy Birthday [FirstName]".

Pretty cool!
