Google registers ‘Google Gives Back’

Google Gives Back

It looks like Google has plans to give back this holiday season, as to who or what exactly, is unknown.

On November 20, the search engine giant registered three domain names: Googlegivesback.com, Googlegivesback.net and Googlegivesback.org.

According to Whois historical records, Googlegivesback.com was first registered back in 2008 by a resident of Orlando, Florida, before the name finally expired. 

As of today, none of the domains resolve to a web page, but with the holidays right around the corner and Black Friday this week, you can expect Google to make an announcement soon for its ‘Google Gives Back’ program.

[Updated on December 15, 2011:  Google launched Google Gives Back 2011 today, a site that shares information about Google’s charitable efforts.]
