Some serious numbers

Hits and views is common terminology in today's world.

What many of people don't realise though, is just how many hits or views popular websites get.

A great example of this is YouTube.

Parent company Google are currently fighting a billion dollar copyright infringement case over YouTube videos.

The judge presiding over the case has ordered Google to provide info to the court on who watches videos and when.

Google lawyers have argued that to print this information would require the equivalent of 12 million books.

12 million books!

Now that's some serious site visit numbers. Don't you think?
