Yahoo! and Google index sizes

I find it interesting that news of a study that denies Yahoo!’s claim to have a substantially larger index than Google is, if anything, spreading much faster and more broadly within the blogosphere (or at least the slice of it I follow) than did the original claim.

I find it unfortunate, however, that almost none of those linking to the study are also linking to this post by Seth Finkelstein, which does a good first-cut job of undermining the study.

If you’re going to read the study, read Finkelstein’s post as well–and think about it.
