Google behind the numbers: In the main the majority of the vast sum of money that is earned every year comes from publicising. Around one billion people use the giant search engine every month; in real terms this means that one person out of seven uses Google on a regular basis. Thinking again in terms of google behind the numbers - add up the time that is spent using the giant search engine and it is in excess of two hundred billion minutes a year. Google consumes mammoth amounts of electricity, somewhere in the region of two hundred and sixty million watts per year.
