The Web: More Than 2 Billion Pages Strong

It's one of the questions we get asked most often here at CyberAtlas: How many pages are on the World Wide Web? Frankly, we're sick of guessing and the folks at Cyveillance say they have an answer. Sounds good to us.

It’s one of the questions we get asked most often here at CyberAtlas: How many pages are on the World Wide Web? The folks at Cyveillance, which makes an artificial intelligence-based search-and-analysis technology, have come up with an answer.

According to the Cyveillance study “Sizing the Internet,” more than 2.1 billion unique, publicly available pages exist on the Web. The study also found that the Web is growing at the explosive rate of 7 million pages each day, meaning it will double from its current size by early 2001. But the study also predicts the Internet’s highest growth rate is yet to come.

For the study, Cyveillance analyzed Internet pages and examined links, tracking the frequency of unique URLs. Additional findings from the study include:

  • Average size of pages: 10,060 bytes
  • Average number of internal links per page: 23
  • Average number of external links per page: 5.6
  • Average number of images per page: 14.4
  • Percentage of US vs. international pages: 84.7 percent/15.3 percent
