What Happens in a Google Minute? [Infographic]

Google is deeply embedded into the Web. So much so that when the search servers were down for five minutes last April, Internet traffic dropped 40 percent. That’s power — the kind that can make or break a business.

We’ve explored what happens in a minute on the Internet and what happens in a minute on YouTube. An infographic from SumoCoupon demonstrates all the things that happen in a Google minute.

In just 60 short seconds, Google processes:

  • 2.4 million search inquires
  • More than 20.5 million ad impressions
  • 1.15 million Play Store app downloads
  • More than 600 new users
  • Nearly 700 direct click-to-call — or people calling directly from an ad

Check out the infographic below to find out how many people search for “twerk” and how much revenue Google makes every minute:
