Today I Learn: Size of Google Search

– 16% to 20% of queries that get asked every day have never been asked before. 
– Every query has to travel on average 1,500 miles to a data center and back to return the answer to the user. 
– A single Google query uses 1,000 computers in 0.2 seconds to retrieve an answer.
