On the same day that MSN launches its new MSN search engine…
In a statement Microsoft said its search engine returned results from five billion web pages. At the time of writing, Google was only indexing 4,285,199,774 web pages.
As well as a large number of pages, the Microsoft search engine, which operates under the MSN banner, also includes a number of features that have already been seen on other search sites.
…Google double their search index to over 8 billion pages….
Today that number nearly doubled to more than 8 billion pages. That made me smile.
Interesting PR at work here.
