    Is Google (or Googlebot) female?

    It always cracks me up when Linda refers to Google or Googlebot as "she".

    I tend to think more in terms of "he" (or perhaps "it" for Googlebot), possibly because the main players (i.e., Page and Brin + Matt Cutts) are all male.

    What do you think?

    LOL, I can't believe you did a poll on this. THAT cracks ME up!!!

    She is most definitely a she. (Or at least Google Places is!)

    She's as fickle as they come and she's a whiley beast!

    I've always thought of Google as more of an "it" than anything else. If it did have a gender, it would be a bit of both and probably have a name like Pat or Kelly.

    I believe the birth certificate identifies him as Ralph, Ralph Lawrence Google.
