Statistics about Google
Google is one company that is always on our minds. Whenever we have a question, or need
directions, or want to see a picture of something, almost the entire world first thinks to
“Google it.” In fact, this expression has become so common that “Google” has been officially
recognized by the Oxford English Dictionary as a verb in the English language.
This should give us an idea of how significant Google has become in our modern lives. But
just how deep does Google’s dominance go? After all, Google is much more than just a
search engine. It’s also an email client (Gmail), a social video site (YouTube), an office suite
(Google Drive), a mobile operating system (Android), and much, much more.
This is a very interesting read taken from a great post from Broad Band Search
The folks at Google realized a long time ago that controlling the catalogue of the internet was
going to be big business, one driven mainly by advertising.
Google advertising works in a few ways. For one, they sell ad space on search results pages
to companies to provide its customers (the business) with better visibility in front of their
clients. This is the program that used to be called Google AdWords but that is now referred to
more simply as Google Ads.
In addition, Google collects information about your search history (and anything you do with
Google, really) and uses that to deliver personalized ad experiences for websites that partner
with it. This one of the reasons why you often start seeing ads for something you’ve recently
searched for on your favourite sites.
Other companies, such as Facebook, do this as well, but judging by the massive amount of
revenue this generates for Google, it’s safe to say they are one of the best.
Most of us know Google as a search engine, and there’s a good reason for that. Google is
the predominant search engine in the world, and it shows no signs of giving up the massive
lead it has built over the years. Here are some stats about Google as a search engine:
There Are More Than 2 Trillion Google Searches Each Year
That’s trillion with a “t.” To put it in perspective, that works out to more than five billion
searches every day, 228 million every hour, three million every minute, and 63 million every
These numbers seem astronomical and almost unbelievable at first glance, but in reality, they
make a lot of sense. Five billion searches a day means every adult in the world makes one
search per day. But most of us do multiple, and many do none, hence the average.
That so many people search is not surprising. However, they search almost exclusively
on Google is, and that’s why Google has become so dominant in today’s digital world.
Google Owns More than 90 Percent of the Worldwide Search Market
We all knew Google was dominant, but did you know it was this dominant? Google owns 90
percent of the world’s searches and they are so entrenched that it’s hard to see it falling from
this spot. The next few search engines on the list, Bing, Yahoo!, Baidu, and DuckDuckGo,
have no more than two per cent market share each.
WORKING WITH GOOGLE SEARCH AND SUNSHINE COAST WEB DESIGN
Every time you search, there are thousands, sometimes millions, of webpages with helpful information. How Google figures out which results to show starts long before you even type, and is guided by a commitment to you to provide the best information.
Even before you search, Google organizes information about webpages in our Search index. The index is like a library, except it contains more info than in all the world’s libraries put together.
EVERYONE WANTS TO RANK HIGH ON GOOGLE.
One of the problems is SEO can be time-consuming, not to mention difficult. But what if there was a way to boost Google rankings quickly?
Find keywords that you’re already ranking for, but not in the top positions (yet).
If you don’t have Search Console setup for your site, pause reading this and go set it up. It’s an essential SEO tool.
If you didn’t know, Google Search Console (or GSC and formerly Webmaster Tools), is a free tool to help manage your website’s search functionality and appearance. It is basically a collection of reports and tools that help you fix errors and optimize your pages.
Likewise, using a rank tracker (like our search reporting 😉) helps you verify and keep an eye on your keyword positions in Google. Without it, knowing which keywords are driving traffic (and revenue) will be needlessly tricky.
