Back in 1999 Google was just a small search engine that had about one billion searches per year. Does that sound pretty good to you? Well, now, only 17 years later, Google is claiming that they have over 2 trillion searches per year. They won’t let the cat out of the bag on the exact number of searches, but they do say it is higher than that figure. The last number we heard from them was back in 2012 and it was 1.2 trillion, so that is actually quite a big jump. In fact, they have only said that they have “trillions” of searches per year, which one would assume is over 2 trillion, but it could be even more.
If it is in fact true that there are at least 2 trillion searches done on the clearly popular search engine per year, then that means that there are 63,000 searches alone performed per second, and 167 billion per month. Keep in mind that there are only about 7 billion people on this planet so that means that every single month, each person does about 23 Google searches, give or take a few decimal points.
One can expect that this is exponentially larger than the yearly searches for Micosoft’s Bing and Yahoo search which have much smaller shares of the market. Bing has about 12% of global search market share and Yahoo has sunk down to about 7% globally. With this new data some think that Google has cemented it’s place at the top since it has more than 70% of the global market share for searches. They claim to have basically doubled their searches in the past four years, which is pretty incredible, and the fact that it could even be more than that is stunning. 2 trillion is just the lowest possible number that it could be, it only goes up from there!
