News that Exalead's database of web pages has passed the one billion page mark. The total page count on the home page now reads: 1,031,065,733 pages.
If you've never tried Exalead, I think it's more than worth a look. I blogged an overview post focusing on a few of its numerous advanced search features back in October. A couple of weeks ago I posted about personalizing the Exalead home page.
Exalead's Paris-based CEO, Francois Bourdoncle, tells me that the company plans to have a two billion page web index online in the near future. He also said that his company is about just ready to introduce a desktop search tool.
