How a Site Gets 5 Billion Pages Indexed By Google in 3 Weeks
Posted on 19th June, 2006
I came across this post via threadwatch.org about a site that has managed to get 5 billions listed into Google.
Check out this site: search of eiqz2q.org — depending which datacentre you use, you will see between 3.8 and 5.5 billion results!
In comparison, Microsoft.com has 260 million pages listed. While Google itself has 62.3 million pages listed in its own index. These domains have been around much longer. Microsoft.com was registered in 1991 whereas Google.com was registered in 1997.
In contrast, eiqz2q.org was on 31 May 2006!
However last time I checked only 482 million pages appeared in Google search result. Perhaps Google has started taking action after being inundated by spamming reports from concern users.
The spammer manages to have that many pages listed using subdomains to trick Google. This trick works well with MSN and sometimes Yahoo.
After the BigDaddy update, it seems that Google starts to give more weight on subdomain indexing too. This preference can be easily abused by spammers to their advantage.

No, I am suggesting you to do this, but it’s always good to be aware that this is one territory you shouldn’t venture into.
