Trying not to
include any phallic analogies, Yahoo this week announced
that its overall search engine index is much larger than
Googles and is the most in depth index of web
objects on the search market. On the Yahoo Search
Blog, Yahoo disclosed that its index now includes 19.2
billion web documents, 1.6 billion images and more than
50 million audio and video files - over 20 billion items.
Yahoo is usually shy about disclosing the size of its search index, but the Yahoo Search Blog is celebrating its first year anniversary and Tim Mayer thought that somewhat of a retrospect was in order - since Yahoo has grown into its own as a search engine powerhouse over the past 365 days.
