Microdoc News Maps What Google Misses in Searching Web 

Microdoc News did a study in May of this year to try and map what Google leaves out when it searches the Internet. They found from Google that it indexes 3,083,324,652 web pages out of an estimated 10 billion or so pages that are actually on the Internet.

After using a desktop crawler to seek out a specific term, they found Google missed 71% of the web pages with that term, 50% of the blogs with the term, 63% of the educational sites, 55% of the news and information providers, and 92% of personal pages using the search term.
