Well at the moment it’s anyones guess. In a recent interview Googles chief executive Eric E. Schmidt said that they would be ‘updating’ their current figure of over 8 billion (8,168,684,336).

Google are now reported to be confident that they have turned the tables on their archrival Yahoo and have actually asked members of the public to guess what they think the new page count is now that they have upgraded the way their database is handled.

Humm.. I might be way out, but I recon its a huge figure. 8 billion is 8*10^9 and I believe that the true figure will be orders of magnitude larger.

I’m just going to go for it and say 1.6*10^11 or to put another way about 160,000,000,000 oooh thats a lot of pages.
