Searching 3,307,998,701 web pages
Perhaps that's because today AllTheWeb is saying:
Currently searching 3,151,743,117 web pages
Now for a Google search on "the", I get a count of 3,480,000,000 web pages.
The same search on AllTheWeb shows 1,316,623,131 web pages.
So Google seems to be bigger than they say and AllTheWeb may well be smaller.
What does it all mean? It beats me.
