Yahoo responds on Index Size, Stands by number

Print Friendly

Yesterday, John Battelle said he’d talked to Google engineers who claimed to be confused by Yahoo’s claim of a 19.2 billion page index. Today he updates with Yahoo’s response and points out that it is quite possible indeed.

He also notes that while Google’s front page still reads 8 billion, that number is over a year old. Since we know that Google hasn’t stopped indexing that span of time, it’s not absurd to think that, particularly with the influx of pages following Google Sitemaps, Google’s 8 billion number is very out of date and very much under reporting their index size.

And so it goes.
