139,000 New Web Sites Come Online Every Day - 70 New URLs Every 60 Seconds - 150 Billion Indexed Pages

Next generation real-time Web content filters that analyze and categorize the content of web pages at the point-of-request, are the only way to stay ahead of the avalanche of new, and often malicious, sites created every day.

If you started counting out loud right now it would take you 31 years to count to a billion. Can you imagine how long it would take to reach 150 billion? One hundred and fifty billion is the number of searchable indexed Web pages on the Internet. Just how big is the Web, and how much data is travelling across it? A new infographic from Bloxx puts it into perspective:

  •     Better Have a Speedy Server - Try downloading every bit of content off the Web from your computer and you’d need 11 trillion years to do it.
  •     Rooms with a View – If you packed 450 2-terabyte storage drives into a single 8’ x 10’ room, you’d need 1,000 drive-packed rooms to equal the estimated “Exabyte” of data on the Web.
  •     That’s a Lot of Pop Corn – The amount of data travelling over the Internet in just three minutes is the digital equivalent of every motion picture ever made in the last 120 years.
  •     Look out McDonalds – With 700 million Web sites “being served” every day, and some 140,000 new sites coming on line every day, it’s impossible to catalogue URLs to try and block every malicious web site out there.

“Our ‘Big Web’ infographic shows the dramatic size, and threat, of accessing the more than 700* million Web sites offering some trillion terabytes of data,” said Charles Sweeney, CEO of Bloxx, a Web content filtering and email security company. “Next generation real-time Web content filters that analyze and categorize the content of web pages at the point-of-request, are the only way to stay ahead of the avalanche of new, and often malicious, sites created every day.”
