If, at the time of writing (14th Sep 17):

  • lateral thinking = 7 940 000
  • puzzling question = 943 000

then how much is stack exchange ?


I think these are

numbers of hits reported when you put those phrases into Google,


for me the numbers come out just a little different. (And I get slightly different numbers depending on whether I use a browser on which Google knows who I am, or a different one in incognito mode.)


for me, at the moment, stack exchange maps to 60 500 000 (as me) or 60 800 000 (incognito).

  • $\begingroup$ and I see something slightly different too... So technically they can not only grow :-S $\endgroup$
