For over a decade, Google has played a pretty significant role in much of our online activity. Whether we search for something on Google.com, check Gmail, watch a YouTube video, use Chrome to browse, check directions on Google Maps, use an Android device, etc, etc, we are adding to some unbelievable user numbers for Google.

You might know that I regularly curate a few Google stat posts over on my other site, DMR, below are 10 of my favorite Google stats. For hundreds more Google stats, be sure to check out the following posts:

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these stats come from YouTube/Google’s own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.
