How big is the Internet?

I've got some questions from my coleagues about:

1. How many pages are there on the Internet.
2. What part of Internet is indexed by SE?
3. How many new pages comes up every day?

Though I work online for more then 10 years now, I can't answer those :-(

What is your version? :-)

I'm not sure how many pages there are, but I did find THIS [mythologic.net].

By the time anyone has answered those questions, they'd be out of date.

1. Just a bit shy of infinite. Most pages are dynamic so they can be created in many ways.
2. Those that do not specifically indicate not to be indexed. (A la Blake Field v Google)
3. See #1 answer.

There are 20,410,000,000 pages on Google with 'the' on them. Add in foreign lanuage sites, then double the number (as Google probably hasn't indexed half of the web) and you probably have a rough number of pages. Of course I don't know how many new pages are added daily, hourly, etc.

3. How many new pages comes up every day?

1) One! That's the one you're looking at. That's the one that I sweated over for 2 years to get to the top of the serps. That's the one I pay for advertising on. That's the one that contains auxillary listings for my widgets. One, and just one.

2) The pages that contain my widgets. Some SE's are better than others, but I still manage to scratch out a few indexed pages in most of them.

3) Not enough... I'm a poor old overworked man.. gimme some space. I'm trying to keep those that I already have out there up to date, but I promise to write another one soon.

RonPK: There is more to Life, the Universe, and Everything than the Internet.
My family tells me so ;-)

And, guess what?
There is more to the WWW than is found in Google!
There are a multitude of huge sites i.e. B2B, each millions of pages, happily existing in 'gated communities' safe from bots and the great unwashed browsing public.

And gasp:
There is more to the Internet than the WWW!
There is even more to the Internet than http!
There is even, heaven help us, more to the Internet than IM!

There's a statistical theory that if you gave a million monkeys typewriters and set them to work, they'd eventually come up with the complete works of Shakespeare. Thanks to the Internet, we now know this isn't true.

anyway if ya did ..some one would just scrape it and slap adsense on it ..and then wonder why their check "didn't get here yet" :(

they'd probably claim "faire use" or that "Will" or the monkeys should 've opted ou via robots txt

great one, bedlam.

Someone(an ex in-law) once insisted to me that he had surfed the Internet and had gotten to the end. He said he stayed up very late that night. He knows nothing about computers, but he truly believed, and there was no convincing him otherwise, that he had seen it all.

There's this page telling the number of users which means more than the number of pages because most of the pages are worthless spam now.
