Wednesday, November 10, 2004Inside Google) A Google search for "the", which used to contain 9,580,000,000 results, now reports 10,980,000,000 results. Google can now officially claim to be the first search engine to crack 10 billion, and basically 11 billion. the page count jumped by over 33% -- that is the big news.
Why does it matter? Because Google has either:
a) has googlebot crawling at a feverish pace, so much that other bots will be hard pressed to match (Slurp and MSNbot).
b) Google is now indexing other possible file types that we are not aware of.
or c) Google's reporting of the count is "broken".
What matters is not the page count, but why the page count is as high as it is now.
