Flash: Google is 150% of search market
Wednesday, July 16th, 2003
The only problem with this: Google itself says it does “more than 200 million searches a day.” Which means Google accounts 150% of each month’s searches. 🙂
Frankly, I think that the 200 million number is still low, but I guess it serves Google well to leave its competitors and analysts so deeply in the dark. No doubt, Google will make a nice splash declaring that “the search market is actually twice as big as you think” when the company eventually goes public.
For a brief chronicle of the trouble journalists have had thinking critically about Google’s numbers, read this post.
