Just How BIG is the Web?

Are you ready for some big numbers? Well how about this:

THERE ARE MORE THAN 150 BILLION SEARCHABLE INDEXED WEB PAGES ON THE INTERNET.

Once you pick your digital jaw up off the floor, check out a new infographic from Bloxx that shares more on just how big the Web has become. Some of our favorite highlights include:

– If you downloaded every bit of Web content from your computer, it would take 11 trillion years.

– If you packed 450 2-terabyte storage drives into a single 8’ x 10’ room, you’d need 1,000 drive-packed rooms to equal the estimated “Exabyte” of data on the Web

– The amount of data travelling over the Internet in just three minutes is the digital equivalent of every motion picture ever made in the last 120 years.

“Our ‘Big Web’ infographic shows the dramatic size, and threat, of accessing the more than 700* million Web sites offering some trillion terabytes of data,” said Charles Sweeney, CEO of Bloxx, a Web content filtering and email security company. “Next generation real-time Web content filters that analyze and categorize the content of web pages at the point-of-request, are the only way to stay ahead of the avalanche of new, and often malicious, sites created every day.”
