By on February 24th, 2010

Royal Pingdom is one site which can come up with some really cool stuff, including analysis of huge amounts of data. So when I came across a post called Google facts and figures, I just sat down to see what interesting things I could learn about Google.

Google Facts and Figures

You can view the infographics at Royal Pingdom, but here are some highlights of the research put up by them.

  • Google gave 1.8 million shares to Stanford Univ to license PageRank, which were later sold in 2005 for $336 million.
  • 620 million visitors visit Google.com daily.
  • 97% of Google Revenue comes from their advertising services.
  • Google processes 20 Petabyte of information daily.
  • As of December 2009, Google’s assets were valued at $40.5 billion
  • A new Google employee is called Noogler, and later transitions to be called a Googler.
  • Google has a total of 19,835 employees worldwide out of which 37% are in sales and marketing and 37.5% in research and development.
