Recently, Yahoo claimed to have dramatically increased the size of their index, and this claim immediately came under fire from Google, which you'd expect. However, there's some interesting research entitled A Comparison of the Size of the Yahoo and Google Indices from the University of Illinois which backs it up, and goes further. There's a lot of facts and figures in the short article, and I'll sum it up in the quote:
