I recently noticed that the price history for Google (GOOG) on Yahoo Finance only goes back to when the stock split. For a while I thought they just hadn't gotten around to adjusting the close prices for the split, but it still hasn't been "fixed".

Just wondering if this is normal for Yahoo Finance when a stock splits or not? If so, when might the historical price data from before the split to come back? I use Yahoo data for some of my backtesting, and while I don't necessarily need the Google data, it would be nice to have the entire price history back up and running for purposes of data purity and completeness, so that if I run a backtest on the S&P 500, I don't have holes like that.

If this just normal and temporary, that's fine, but if not I'd like to know in case I should invest some time in finding and writing web scraping algos for another source for daily stock data.

The stock was split into two share classes, the series that you might be looking for is under the ticker GOOGL.
