elgooG as the name suggests is literally a mirror image of Google. It is a site with everything in reverse order of what you find in Google homepage. To enter a query you must type the letters in reverse order in the search engine. The search results will be displayed backwards. What you might ask does it have any use?
elgooG found a notorious usage in China. Typically build for fun, elgooG was widely used by the Chinese when Google was banned in the country. Since the search terms in elgooG appear in reverse order users were able to search content without detection by the Chinese government’s search filters. elgooG.com is a functional website registered to Google.
