How Much of the Web is Indexed?
So, how big is the web anyway?
- Google has an 8 billion page index
- Yahoo has 6.6 billion pages
- MSN has 5.1 billion pages.
Danny asks the poignant question: does it really matter how big each search engine’s index is if all the pages can’t be accessed? In this instance, it is really a matter of quality over quantity. Having a huge amount of web pages really doesn’t benefit anyone if the most useful pages are not accessible in searches.
