Did you know the web is made up of more than 30 trillion individual pages? Or that the Google search index is over 100 million gigabytes?

Well, now you can explore this and much, much more on Google’s interactive Inside Search page. Find out how the famous search engine crawls through the cyberworld to find you results with charts, graphs, and interactive elements. There’s even a feature that displays live spam screenshots so you can see Google hard at work to remove inappropriate or useless content from their engine.

Although some of the information is pretty complicated, all of it is presented in an approachable way that reads more like a story so that even a web-novice could learn about the powerful search engine.

Happy Google-searching, y’all!
