Segundo o blog do Google, a web tem neste momento cerca de 1 trilião (US) de links únicos.
7/25/2008 10:12:00 AMWe’ve known it for a long time: the web is big. The first Google indexin 1998 already had 26 million pages, and by 2000 the Google index reached the one billion mark. Over the last eight years, we’ve seen a lot of big numbers about how much content is really out there.Recently, even our search engineers stopped in awe about just howbig the web is these days — when our systems that process links on the web to find new content hit a milestone: 1 trillion (as in1,000,000,000,000) unique URLs on the web at once!
Para nós será algo como 1 bilião.

Aqui fica uma tabela para melhor se perceber esta questão dos números gigantescos.
People sometimes ask me the names of the large numbers. Here is a table. The
system used in the U.S. is not as logical as that used in other countries (like
Great Britain, France, and Germany). In these other countries, a billion (bi
meaning two) has twice as many zeros as a million, and a trillion (tri meaning
three) has three times as many zeros as a million, etc. But the scientific
community seems to use the American system.
