Google can't count?

Some people are saying that "Google can't count"...

I don't know if it can count or not. I assume it can... With a market cap of 137 Billion Dollars I would imagine that it can count at least to 137 billion... ;)

Kidding aside, I'm sure there's a very good explanation for this. Possibly that if you didn't find what you're looking for by page 50 or 100, you need to tweak your search query...

Here's a really silly example... Go search for the word "and" in Google. Yes, the word "and"...

4.2 billion results right? How many can you see? That's right 912 or so...

Certainly there must be more than 912 "and" written on more than 912 different web pages, right? ;)

It's all in the relative numbers.

"the" is more popular than "and" BTW... 4.5 billion... ;)
