Google Official Blog deleted by accident… by Google!

Last modified on 30th March, 2006

The Official Google blog was temporarily unavailable yesterday because Google had accidentally deleted their own blog!


Google has admitted this mistake.

Update: We’ve determined the cause of tonight’s outage. The blog was mistakenly deleted by us (d’oh!) which allowed the blog address to be temporarily claimed by another user. This was not a hack, and nobody guessed our password. Our bad.

Then a blogger tried registering a new blog with it and it worked and posted the following message

Google, fix your blog pleeasssee! <3 (P.S. Just to clear things up, I'm not associated with Google at all. I just wanted to take advantage of this before someone else with less worthy intentions did. The username was giving a 404, so I tried registering a new blog with it. Surprisingly, it worked. Oh, and no posting URLs in the comments or else they'll be deleted.)
