Some Amazing Facts About Google

Someone sent me an interesting infographic about Google recently. Here are a few facts from it that I found particularly compelling:

• Today, Google indexes 40 billion web pages. In the near future, the company hopes to index approximately 100 petabytes of information — the equivalent of all the data contained in half of all material ever printed in human history.

• Google’s operating income is equal to the combined GDP of the Cayman Islands, Greenland, Dominica, Maldives, Mongolia and Barbados.

• There are 1.5 billion images on Google. To save them all, you would need 112 million floppy disks.

• There are over one trillion unique URLs. If these addresses were typed end-to-end, they would stretch a third of the way to the sun (nearly 32 million miles).
