We knew the web was big

We’ve known it for a long time: the web is big. The first Google index in 1998 already had 26 million pages, and by 2000 the Google index reached the one billion mark. Over the last eight years, we’ve seen a lot of big numbers about how much content is really out there. Recently, even our search engineers stopped in awe about just how big the web is these days – when our systems that process links on the web to find new content hit a milestone: 1 trillion (as in 1,000,000,000,000) unique URLs on the web at once!

And they are talking about ‘unique’ URL’s as well - however I wonder if half are with the WWW and the other half without. Google sometimes has problems telling the difference.

Either way, it is still a lot. Bags not doing a manual check on each one.

Well look at it on the positive side you would definitely have a job for life and
with a bit of nepotism your great, great, great grand kids would too. :smiley:

Hmmm!! How would one go about getting the job?

I don’t know but given the working conditions at Google - what a job! I doubt whether I would get through 100 urls’s each day.

such is life
