One trillion web terms!

We all know that the web is rather large, in fact back in 98 when Pantani was rocking the world of cycling and our friends across the water were celebrating winning the World Cup, Big G had already collected 26 million pieces of content. 

Even then that was an immense amount of information – in fact I really struggle to get to grips with the numbers.  Today although sadly Pantani is no longer with us and the Italians soon put a stop to the possibility of a lucrative 2nd tournament win for the French, Google has been increasing the number of URLs it has collected, its actually just been announced that the number of URLs indexed by the search engine has just reached the Trillion mark! 

Yes that 1,000,000,000.  However this really is only the tip of the ice berg and the real question maybe how many of these pages are really relevant.
