Google Surpasses 8 Billion Indexed Pages: 4-byte DocIds Put to Shame

Big news, not the fact that MSN search went live, well kinda but the fact that Google has nearly doubled its index by reaching 8,058,044,651 indexed pages. Have you seen an increase in your site's pages indexed by Google? I have.

Anyway, one important note made by GoogleGuy (and something that is apparent by this major stepping stone) is that Google is "not limited by four-byte docids." There has been a theory floating around that Google was limited by the number of pages they can possibly index over the past 4 months or so.
