    The Day the Internet Search Engines Stopped Growing!

    (Page 1 of 9 )

    A fascinating thing happened today on the way to this article. The story here was not planned, rather it was discovered.

    An amazing and bizarre event seems to have happened in January
    and February of 2003. In those early months of 2003, the major
    search engines stopped growing, and few people seem to even care.


    After an exhaustive five hour search running the best and
    brightest spider search engines and a host of search key phrases,
    the most up-to-date numbers I could locate for the *Number of
    Searches Performed Per Day*, or per year for that matter, for any
    search engine was done by Search Engine Watch in February of
    2003. And in that issue, Danny Sullivan the editor of Search
    Engine Watch had his numbers authoritatively from the powers-
    that-be at each search engine company.

    The global February 2003 *Searches Per Day* numbers for all of
    the listed search engines added up 625 million. For just the
    United States, the numbers from January 2003 totaled 319 million
    searches per day.

    Apparently, I am not alone in the discovery that current numbers
    just are not available. Every reference to *Searches Per Day*
    that I was able to turn up pointed back to the February 2003
    numbers, or the numbers of a previous month.

    I did find a few people lamenting the fact that up-to-date
    numbers were not available, but these people were few and far
