Google Expired

Google updated one of its documents on how to help people find your site on Google. In that document, they added a line that reads "Keep your site up to date: If your restaurant website hasn't updated its menu since 1925, then update it; there aren't a lot of customers searching for sarsparilla these days." Yes, they even linked to Wikipedia for that so you can see that Sarsaparilla is a soft drink that was popular in the United States in the 19th century.

Super funny and Marie Haynes spotted it and posted it on Twitter - here is a screen shot :
