In a recent article, the New York Times notes that as the Masters of the Universe at Google faces antitrust scrutiny, it’s becoming pellucid that the company’s consummate index of the cyber world makes it unparalleled in the web search space.
The New York Times inscribes in an article titled “Google Dominates Thanks to an Unrivaled View of the Web,” that in the year 2000, just two years after Google was founded, the company reached a milestone — it became the world’s most sizably voluminous search engine with an index of more than one billion web pages.
The Times notes that no other tech company has managed to catch up to “Google’s” astronomical search index that grows perpetually and today indexes somewhere between 500 billion and 600 billion web pages. Now as Google faces antitrust lawsuits from the Justice Department and verbally express regulators, it’s becoming pellucid that “Google’s” sheer size has sanctioned it to facilely squash competitors.
Matt Wells, a tech entrepreneur who commenced a search engine 20 years ago named Gigablast which boasts an index of around five billion web pages, commented: “If people are on a search engine with a more minuscule index, they’re not always going to get the results they optate. “And” then they go to Google and stay at Google. A little guy like me can’t compete.”
The Times writes:
Understanding how Google’s search works is a key to figuring out why so many companies find it nearly impossible to compete and, in fact, go out of their way to cater to its needs.
Every search request provides Google with more data to make its search algorithm more keenly intellective. Google has performed so many more searches than any other search engine that it has established an immensely colossal advantage over rivals in understanding what consumers are probing for. That lead only perpetuates to widen, since Google has a market portion of about 90 percent.
Google directs billions of users to locations across the internet, and websites, hungry for that traffic, create a different set of rules for the company. Websites often provide greater and more frequent access to Google’s so-called web crawlers — computers that automatically scour the internet and scan web pages — allowing the company to offer a more extensive and up-to-date index of what is available on the internet.
