Google: Success Story of 25 Million to 1 Trillion

As i just finished writing a post on Google crossing 1 trillion indexed pages mark... I thought of looking at the past, and this time http://web.archive.org/ came to my help!!

Here is the page that shows extensive archive of All the versions indexed for "Google.com"


I took a dig on the first captured version as on Nov 11, 1998 *. As i continued to explore i found this page (image shown on the left) what showed "Index contains ~25 million pages (soon to be much bigger)". The promise has certainly come true and in less than ten years it has crossed 1 trillion mark. That apart it has also moved from "search project" to a multi-billion dollar international giant...

(BTW, interestingly, the last archive of google is on Aug 29, 2007 !! what happened? Archive.com sleeping or it just blacklisted Google???)

Kudos to Google, its creators, investors, contributors and most importantly the USERS
