While reading one of the 9/11 blog posts yesterday, I came across an interesting link that made me want to find out more. The link was to what the Google homepage looked like on 9/11/01, which showed that you could "search 1,610,476,000 web pages". These were ALL the pages Google had indexed as of that date.
Fast-forward 5 years later to 9-11-06 and Google no longer shows the number of pages you can search. However, just so we have a point of reference as to how much the Internet has changed over the past 5 years, I Googled the words "real estate" which lead to the search results page showing on the top right side that there were 'about' 903,000,000 pages just for real estate. That's more than half the number of all pages indexed 5 years ago!
How has the Internet impacted you as a real estate professional?
