Finally, Google Adds The Memorial Day Ribbon To Home Page

This morning we reported how Google didn't have a mention of Memorial Day on

I've been checking throughout the day, because even though Google would not put a Doodle on their home page, they have in the past done a Memorial Day Ribbon.

Well, after 2pm EST, with the majority of Memorial Day over, Google has added the Ribbon to the home page:

Too little, too late? Maybe. There are now hundreds of complaints in the Google Web Search Help forums from searchers. Some have said they are leaving Google, switching to Bing, because Google has disrespected our veterans.

This is a big deal for Americans and Google may have acted too late on this.

Forum discussion at Google Web Search Help (dozens of threads).
