Gigablast.com has crossed 12 billion indexed pages and so it proudly announces in its homepage.
Currently, as I type there are 12,643,913,856 indexed pages. It would be interesting to do a random check next month or two months later.
Research Buzz comments, "Knowing that Gigablast is up to 12 billion pages is interesting enough. But it's also interesting to know that number and then compare the size of Gigablast's results with the size of Google's.bet if you ran a couple hundred different searches and compared the results of each of the two engines, you could get a decent idea of how much larger Google's index is than Gigablast's. Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ but it only matters up to a point. Of course the most important thing about a data pool is how easy it is to search. On the other hand, it's always good to know how deep that pool is to start with."
Comparison: Searching for search engines in Gigablast.com throws up 128,891,992 results whereas the same in Google throws up 62,800,000 pages. Good for Gigablast.com, great for underdogs.
