Google Services Temporarily Unavailable

Search giant Google left millions of users stranded as it went down for a few minutes today.

Google has gained its reputation for being a reliable search engine for more than a decade now. It has more than one billion unique visitors worldwide and runs over one million servers in data centers around the world.
google down today with 502 error

Today, Google has suffered a service outage at around 1.00 PM IST and some users received a 502 error page. It also affected Google’s other services like Android Market, Google Apps and Gmail. When these services got back online, most of the users experienced them to be a bit slower than usual. Though this entire mess up lasted only for a few minutes, users found it very un-Google like.

Google is yet to issue an official statement on this fiasco.
