Google has just announced that they are watching over a trillion (1,000,000,000,000) pages on the web now, which is more than double the number of stars in our galaxy!
The Official Google Blog has details and some history. Any way you look at it, that’s quite an impressive number. That leads to the next question — how many of those trillion pages are yours? Based on a “site:” search on Google (like this one), I’d say I’ve got about 500,000 pages in their index. I know I’ve got more pages out there, but that’s all that they’re showing. I would assume that their index has far fewer than a trillion pages, but they’ve not released numbers for that in quite a while. How many do you have in there?
