1 Trillion Unique URLs! So Many Destinations, So Slow an Internet Connection
From Google Blog's post We knew the web was big...:
We've known it for a long time: the web is big. The first Google index in 1998 already had 26 million pages, and by 2000 the Google index reached the one billion mark. Over the last eight years, we've seen a lot of big numbers about how much content is really out there. Recently, even our search engineers stopped in awe about just how big the web is these days -- when our systems that process links on the web to find new content hit a milestone: 1 trillion (as in 1,000,000,000,000) unique URLs on the web at once!
But how are we going to beat the rest of the world in accessing all these web destinations when the US is so far behind so many other countries in average broadband speed? [JH]
