Google facts and figures (massive infographic)

Google has perhaps more than any other company become “The Internet Company.” It’s grown hand in hand with the internet and its entire business model has from the start been totally focused on the internet as a delivery platform.

And let’s face it, Google is a pretty interesting company. In fact, we think it’s so interesting that we put together this infographic with a ton of facts and figures about Google. We’ve been digging through Google’s SEC filings, news articles and the trusty old Wikipedia to get plenty of interesting data to include. We hope you like it!

Updated, Feb 25, 13:40 CET: The first version contained an error, that 270,000 words were written on Blogger per day. It’s per minute, and the infographic has been updated accordingly.

  1. Incredibly elegant visualization. Dave Gray from Xplane would love this. Probably have some nice comments to add to it as well.

    You’ve prompted me to create a similar infographic for ThoughtRod – one on innovation and company/product lifecycles.

    Thanks again for the killer info.

  2. Google’s stock was IPO priced at $85 but unless you were connected or a Google employee your price was $113 on opening day.

  3. There’s a mistake in the number of gourmet restaurants. There are about 15 in Mountain View, CA, but there are restaurants in every office all over the world as well.

  4. The accomplishments achieved by Google are simply mind-boggling.

    This chart helps to put it into perspective but it is still hard to envision numbers this big.

  5. Those figures are truly astonishing – and a great graphic representation of some big numbers.. done so much better with charts so you can see growth.

    Even when Google went through its initial IPO I thought the shares were a tad on the pricey side. Now with hindsight I now figure that I lost the opportunity to turn every $1000 of shares into $6000 – shame for me but great for anyone with shares.

    I’m not complaining though – I get to use some great Google tools (especially Gmail, Docs and Apps) for productivity, web analytics and search engine marketing trends. They do “give out” some pretty cool stuff… in return for your privacy & adwords bucks.

  6. Incredibly eye-opening folks. Well done (as always).
    I’m curious: What do you folks use to assemble these infographics? They’re gorgeous and effective (a tough challenge with even much less complex data).

    I’d love to see a real-time mashup that guesstimates these datapoints as they move. Talk about mind-bending info. Thanks again for the peek inside the Googleplex

  7. I must agree these are some quite amazing figures and also the graphs are an excellent view for us to put things in perpestive as to the scale of the company as a whole..

    But i know that youtube is now owned by google…..

    But are you aware that youtube as a SEARCH ENGINE is getting
    wheeeeeeeyyy more searches than google ???

    i was a bit shocked to hear this but it is TRUE

  8. Interesting stuff! I think Google’s greatest feats are with out a doubt, blogger and adsense. Their development of serving advertisments inside gmail should also be a factor in revenue.

  9. Great and interesting infographic.  I never knew that Google got 620 million visitors a day, though I knew it was a lot.
