My, err, Search Is Bigger Than Yours!

august 8, 2005

Yahoo! shows off it is search muscles by one upping Google today. Yahoo! announced today that their search index comprises of 20 billion "objects" (combination of documents, images, and other goodies). Google's index comprises of 11.3 billion objects. But, off course size is not everything. Index freshness and relevant results also matter -- to which I cannot speak of. But, I do really like the new social functionality of My Web 2.0, which Google has nothing to match.
