Google hides World Cup Easter egg in search
Google has changed a single search page to prepare us all for the FIFA World Cup, which is slated to begin in just two days.

When users type "World Cup" into Google Search, they will find a different header at the bottom of the page where Google allows users to click on the desired page in results. Instead of the familiar "Goooooogle," the page says, "Goooooooal!."

Wondering if the change occurred on every search page related to the World Cup, I started trying other queries out, like "soccer," "world cup soccer," and others. In each instance, the familiar "Goooooogle" was listed at the bottom of the page. So, it would seem that, at least based on my experience with Search, only the "World Cup" query will reveal the Easter egg.
