Fast announced today that they dethroned Google as the world’s largest search engine. With exactly 2,095,568,809 documents to Google’s 2,073,418,204, they’ve got a 22,150,605 document lead, which seems pretty tenuous considering it’s only 1% of the size of their index. But as it turns out, Google exaggerates the size of their database, claiming pages that they are aware of, but have yet to index.
It’s quite a leap for Fast, considering they were far behind last December. The last time Fast made such an announcement, Google doubled their size within a week. I’m braced for the retailiation.
