Yahoo Beats Google In Size Of Search Index  Reply with quote  

quote:

Yahoo Inc. says its search engine indexes more than 20.8 billion items, which is nearly twice as much as online search leader Google Inc.

In its company blog, Yahoo, based in Sunnyvale, Calif., says its index includes 19.2 billion web documents, 1.6 billion images and more than 50 million audio and video files. The company typically does not disclose the size of its index.

Mountain View, Calif.-based, Google, on the other hand, indexes about 11.2 billion items, including 8.2 billion web pages and more than 2 billion images and 1 billion items from its discussion groups, according to the company's web site.

Nevertheless, despite its bragging, Yahoo acknowledges that the size of the index "is only one dimension of the quality of a search engine."

I refuse to believe that larger index == better index.

Yahoo has repeatedly shown a striking incompetence. And whoever was saying Microsoft will swoop in and take over... LOL, not while they're running Windows servers they won't. That thing BLEW UP on release day! LOL

It takes technical knowledge and working software to run a search engine. Dual Achilles' heels for MS, I'm afraid.


Beat to fit, paint to match.

MS has the technical knowledge. But they have an ego that matches and exceeds thier techincal know how. They are going to try and force another propietary system on the internet. And it's going to backlash at them. Take a look around how many people are using firefox because IE is just riddled with bugs and security leaks.

MSN will have it's users because they just don't care to learn about other systems, kind of like why AOL users just keep thier accounts when they can get netzero for like 14 bucks a month, or heck you can get DSL in texas for less that what AOL dial up costs! MSN has a built in customer base with it's windows search system. So they will make money, but from users that just don't want to 'bother' with an SE.

IMO it is not matter of having bigger or smaller index database. Google is still used by billions of people so. Go Google!

Google has been dropping a lot of pages since the last update, and Yahoo may have a lot more pages indexed at this point.

i think the difference between google and yahoo is google are picky about their contents, where as yahoo seem to be aiming at a definitive view of the net

i prefer the google bot and yahoo barely finds me

Google's index has quietly grown -

first do a search for your keywords on www.google.com

check the number of results.

Then go to this datacenter and run the same query.

I've seen some of these spaces go form 7 million results to over 100 million...

I'm not sure if this makes any difference to the relevance of results. My research shows 82% of clicks come from sites on page 1. So there's even more stuff that will get ignored.

When I try to access page 10+, I get the following error message:

Is this just me?
