  1. If it’s just a typo for a “billion,” then the number works pretty well. The rough numbers are that Google gets a 100M unique users a day, 40% of which are in the US, some of whom use it more than once, and Google’s market share is around 60%. Very believable.

  2. That number is so far off it’s unbelievable; *ebay alone* gets 100M searches/day on its site. Pew has few credentials to be measuring search, and comscore’s method of tracking misses whole swaths of search activity.

    The number is closer to 400-500M IMO
