elgooG (word Google spelled backwards) is a mirrored website of Google Search with horizontally flipped search results, also known as a "Google mirror". It was created by All Too Flat[1] "for fun", which started to gain popularity in 2002.[2] ElgooG found practical use in China after the domestic banning of Google, circumventing the Great Firewall,[3]but it no longer works. A WHOIS request shows that the domain elgoog.im[4] (formerly elgoog.com) was registered to Google LLC since 2000, but it is currently for sale.[5]
