Google has indexed a trillion pages


Google has announced a new milestone – the search-centric company has now indexed a trillion pages, and this number won’t stop there as they are growing at a steady rate of several billion pages per day. According to Google, they do not index every individual page out of the trillion figure, since “many of them are similar to each other, or represent auto-generated content.” This makes sense since many pages consist of duplicate URLs, while others contain multiple pages with similar content. This is in stark contrast to Google’s first index that had a mere 26 million pages, with the company hitting the one billion mark back at the turn of the millennium. I would say that blogs have played a major role in hitting the one trillion mark. Well, what’s next after a trillion?
