Five years ago today Majestic-12 Distributed Search Engine project was founded with the aim to create a community driven search engine based on distributed computing model. Since then we have crawled over 200 billion web pages.

Today, we have more than just our anniversary to celebrate. Our web map index has now grown to 1,026,035,494,521 unique URLs. We believe that makes us the second organisation in the world to publicly announce that we have discovered more than 1 trillion (as in 1,000,000,000,000) unique URLs on the Web.

We are honoured therefore, to provide an independent verification of the milestone announced in July last year, that Google’s systems had detected 1 trillion (as in 1,000,000,000,000) unique URLs on the web.

Our webmap can be explored by visiting www.majesticseo.com, where anyone can get free backlinks data by verifying ownership of their web site.

Additionally our licensed data is processed and offered as a part of services offered by our clients Wordtracker and SearchDNA.net. Wordtracker is a leading keyword research service popular with search engine optimizers, web designers and marketers throughout the world. SearchDNA.net is an SEO link, commerce, content and contact discovery engine and is now taking beta applications.

We look forward to other organisations being able to join the “webmap trillionaires club” in years to come!

    It’s been a great day for Majestic. Alex must be rightly proud. We’re going to tell the wider world on this one tomorrow. If you see it on a news feed, tell them you were there guys :)

    Well you seem to be crawling more than Linkscape. If the Yahoo/Bing partnership sees the dropping of Yahoo site explorer – you’ll be quids in.

    This is just awesome! Congrats on indexing that many URLs. You’re truly worthy of it!

    I’m glad I came back… I recently got turned back on to Majestic SEO from a post on Aaron Wall’s site. I had used it a little before but I now signed up as a member and I’m going to be using it a lot more. So thanks again for providing an excellent service.

    I’ve worked in distributed computing since 2001 in the SETI days.
    Hearing about Alex’s project back in 2006 has turned into a 3 year friendship and it’s my pleasure to work on this project.
    I think you’d have to look long and hard to find a better and more dedicated person than you find in Alex.
    Thanks Alex!

    Hi, I used the MajesticSeo to check the backlinks I have and some other tools.
    I found it very useful and accurate. Thanks

    Please, maybe I don’t understand well, but where is some webform where I can use this engine ??

    Thanks. Jiri

    April 25, 2010 at 8:53 pm
  • Dixon

    The engine ONLY analyzes backlinks, Jiri. So start by putting a URL into http://www.majesticseo.com/ and see where it gets you :)

    Not sure about what the fascination with sheer link numbers is.

    Rather that emulating Google, I would dedicate my server’s processing time to writing a web application to maintain a database of spam domains and blogs to ban them from ever being crawled byany software. Point in case, even after Google has just applied their latest and greatest Panda algorithm update, the goson?.net (a ‘song’ website) has more than 5 million spam links conveniently indexed to cause countless hours of cleanup every day.

      Hi,

      Number of unique URLs is the only parameter that Google voiced recently that enabled us to judge whether we’ve got scale close enough to what they have in terms of web coverage.
