that is just unbelievable. these 2 things stick out at me -

1. Market cap of Google = $2,100,000,000 - that is unfathomable to me...

2. Google's share of global English-language searches = 33% - this
marketshare is lower than I expected. But still a huge piece of the pie.

Be interesting to see how much money google makes a day...

On the adwords alone it must be colossal:

Given 200,000,000 searches a day, and, let's say 10% of users click on an adword link, then that's 20million pay-for-clicks a day.

At what is a likely average of 30 cents per click...thats 6 million a day

That leaves them with about 2.1 billion a year on adwords alone.

So...I'd put Google's market cap at well over 2 billion...more like 20 billion...

Rumor is they're going public soon...

Google 'adwords' are the little advertising boxes that appear on the right hand side of the search results, and are essentially 'pay-per-click' links. So whenever you click on 'em, Google gets at least 5 cents, at most...well, up to 17 dollars depending on the term and the advertiser.

Google also has an 'adsense' program, that essentially lets webmasters put up adwords on their site, rather than on search results. You should be able to see these in this forum (look for the 'ads by google') Right above if I'm not mistaken, so do bigwebmaster a favor and give it a click :wink:

What's equally unbelievable is how a five year old post still gets read and has responses to here at OZZU. Don't you agree?

A thread was made to be responded. I usually agree if the thread that was started was over a problem like software problem or hardware or something in terms of that, but this is on a different basis I think.

Like games... I remember there was an active game last year (2007) that was started in 2003. I agree, that's unbelievable, but I don't think it should be discouraged on this kind of topic. I was actually glad to have come across this topic and read the posts :P

I wasn't discouraging it. Just pointing out that all of OZZU's resources are valuable to someone, no matter how old they are or how far back they are archived.
