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.

If you are wondering how this is done, check out the post over at Monetize: The Step-by-Step Guide to Getting Billions of Pages Indexed by Google.

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.

Update: As expected, Google has banned the domain from its index. A search for site:eiqz2q.org returns no matching documents. The rest of the spammer’s domains aren’t spared either.

    It seems that Google has taken action against the site. My own blog got 456 hits. However, it is No. 1 for the key words ah ok lah.

    Your search – site:eiqz2q.org – did not match any documents.

    It happens sometimes, when people make scrapers and don’t put any limit or throttle on it.

    Google just keeps spidering until someone human spots it and bans the site, looks like it’s happened.

  • I heard about that particular site getting billions of subdomains listed on Google. I have two things to say about that. First, I think it was pretty clever of the eiqz2q.org team to get listed like that. Not that I’m agreeing with their actions or anything, but you do have to give them credit. Second, Google needs to step up and nip this in the bud before their search results start losing even more credibility.
