"[Humble Google With 5 Billion Pages]
Microdoc does the "+the" search in Google to find out there's 5,240,000,000
pages. "

That's not accurate. Many webmasters, myself included, find that Google
misreports the real numbers of pages it has indexed. Sometimes it even claims,
when doing an allinurl: search, almost double the number of pages than actually
exist on the website.

There are various reasons for this, including failing to remove old listings,
listing extra pages with framed redirects to the same place, or perhaps simply
bugginess. I'm not sure how they calculate the figures, but it's just a very
approximate number.
