Google Ignores 9/11 as Other Search Engines Commemorate Solemn AnniversaryBreaking News
But on the solemn eighth anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, while rivals including Ask.com and Microsoft's Bing.com offered prominent commemoration displays, it was just another day for the biggest search engine of them all.
Whereas Google made special note when Luciano Pavarotti died, the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in history went unnoticed.
On Friday, Bing.com's home page appeared with an image of the Tribute in Light, the towering memorial that beams up from lower Manhattan each year in September. Ask.com offered an old image of downtown Manhattan with the Twin Towers faintly perceptible, presented "In Loving Memory," as a small link at the page's bottom says.
