How Much of the Web is Indexed?

Print Friendly

So, how big is the web anyway?

According to Danny Sullivan, 11.5 billion web pages have been indexed. This statistic comes from a paper written by Antonio Gulli and Alessio Signorinialso and also includes other statistics such as:

  • 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.
