The "I'm Feeling Lucky" Easter Egg

The "I'm Feeling Lucky" button from Google's homepage is no longer useful when Google Instant is enabled. When you click the button, Google usually sends you to the doodle gallery, but now the button is more special.

Mouse over the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button and you'll see one of these labels: "I'm Feeling Puzzled", "I'm Feeling Artistic", "I'm Feeling Playful", "I'm Feeling Hungry", "I'm Feeling Wonderful", "I'm Feeling Stellar", "I'm Feeling Trendy", "I'm Feeling Doodly". Each button sends you to a different Google site, so you can explore Google Trends, the Google Art Project, the World Wonders Project and more.

  1. Google is the biggest site on the internet, and so there are many new keywords that arise each and every day, so it is impossible to keep updating.
    But i have got some of the Google I'm feeling lucky keywords or you can say it as Tricks.

    1. I see it on Google dot COM site, but NOT the dot CA (Canada) site. I was using FireFox.

  5. I couldn’t get this option to appear on the Google.com.au site, but it worked fine on the main Google.com domain.I’d expect the change to eventually hit the local site as well. I guess this counts as a Google easter egg (and partly makes up for all the Google Instant search bomb tricks that no longer work).

  7. Calling this an Easter Egg is a bit of a stretch, isn't it? Hover over the button and the text changes, wow, discovered an Easter Egg !

  9. The changes made to 'I'm feeling Lucky' button are not visible in Google.co.in. But when i changes it to Google.com i could see it

    I wish Google implement these changes to regional Google searches also. So that when i click "I'm feeling Hungry" i get a list of all 'dial-for-food" links or some quick recipe links... Just a thought.

    1. I like how you tried to sneak in a link to your site by making the . at the end a link. Lucking they add the nofollow tag to comment links so you don't get any SEO from this.

      If you have a comment to make, make it, but there's no need to spam the comments, no matter how sneaky it may seem.

  11. When I hover over it, it spins too fast for me to stop it on the option tht I want. Is there a way to slow it down, or click through them one at a time?

  12. Not useful! They should instead improve the design of google.com google.com/news and play.google.com. That would be useful!!

  13. Kızlık zarının kanamasıyla ilk ilişki olduğu düşüncesi çok yanlış bir düşünce olup Tıp'a aykırı oldu bilinmektedir. Bazen doğuştan kızlık zarının olmadığı da bilinmekte fakat esnek olması sebebiyle de kanamanın olmayacağı bilinir.

  26. I'm using Google's Chrome browser, but when I click in the search area to type something to search for, Google takes me to another search page, with only the main search button available. I cannot stay on the page with both buttons. What's up with that? As I type, search suggestions start coming up. It's highly annoying!
