I wonder….how much of the web is “fresh web”, and how much is the same old stuff? By that I mean, at the most granular level of indexing – the word and the phrase – how much is relatively new, and how much has already gathered a lot of digital imprints?
I wonder because my old little league coach andy vollero has very few mentions in Google. Nothing to link to, in fact. He’s clearly in the BG generation (Before Google). But I posted on him just now, and also in the last post. So he’ll have two entries now. I wonder, each time Google, Yahoo, etc. crawl, how much of what they find is truly new – in the sense of entirely new words, phrases, names, etc? It’d make an interesting graph, I’d wager. Any of you search geeks out there have any ideas?
