Amazing,

seems they listened to Allergic [webmasterworld.com], even though the numbers still don't add up..;)

also:

[webmasterworld.com...]

I am glad they specify it to the last digit as well.

Yeah....just another regular Google update with almost one billion pages added to the index;)

This is no normal update, it is a major change for most people. Anyone that doesn't see dramatic consquences from this update must own a resturant at the "end of the universe".

I wonder how many are fully indexed. If it's the new figure it is an an amazing feat.

I had thousands of pages added this update because of site rewrites to accomodate the googlebot... maybe the billion new pages are the product of SEO's at work! :D

indigojo,

Thanks for being the first to spot this in the update. I personally feel it is the most significant element of all.

Too many others trying to lead us astray on the fundamentals!

Keep well ;)

Of course, Google could be making these numbers up on the spot and lying. Anyone want to count to make sure it is exactly 3,083,324,652 web pages? ;)

Now that's one web page for every 2 people on the planet..

Another 3 billion and the Andy Warhol prediction will have come true.

And the people who own those 3,083,324,652 Web pages are all expecting to be in the top 10 Google search results. :-)

Not a problem, as long as they use at least 308,332,465 different search terms

i have a sneaking suspicion, that google could fiddle the algo a bit and roll out a searching 1 of 6,083,324,652. could be fun for a day, what do u reckon, just a day though. :)

With so many pages added to the index could this be why so many people dropped in PageRank? I have seen theories that there is only so much PR to go around, this would support that claim.

I think that Google using the "since_modified" header will help the database grow a lot faster than before simply because the bot is not wasting time indexing pages that have not altered.

HI catnip..I was wrong. It's actualy "if modified since" Basicaly this is a server header that tells bots if the content has changed. If there is no changes then the smart bots know they do not have to re index the material. I supose this makes the bots more efficiant and could allow for more gathering between updates. There is another thread here...

It's very difficult to estimate these figures - a single Website is hard to define by a robot.
