    Well I've never looked at porno sites myself, but have heard of it. :p And from what my FRIENDS tell me, it's evolving into small independently hosted sites. Some gal who thinks she's hot takes a few pictures of herself, hosts her own site, asks people to pay to see more pics and they do it. A far cry from the early days where FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND, there were only professional sites to go to. ;)

    Interesting figures though. Be curious to see where spam e-mails fit into those Internet traffic figures.

    This story refers to Internet traffic as a whole, meaning that 6% of all Internet traffic goes through Google and its properties. What I referred to as an additional fact is that 99% of websites (including TechSpot) receive more traffic via Google than through any other external third party site linking to them.

    I believe it the reason why Page and Brin are billionaires. Too much traffic too much money.
