Billion of pages gone in Google?

20,960,000,000. Can this explain the disappearance of a lot of pages from a number of websites?
I will be interested to hear what Google shows in other areas of the world.

Here is what Matt Cutts had to say about the update.
In short, BD seems to be renewing their index and removing sites that don't have natural linkage.
Don't think there's something to worry for white hat SEOs anyway.
Getting quality content to get relevant incoming links and traffic seems to be the only way to stay afloat here.

The question remains why are these large discrepancies?

126.96.36.199 - 20,960,000,000
188.8.131.52 - 20,960,000,000
184.108.40.206 - 20,960,000,000
As for what this means, who knows? Could be as simple as that they're testing an algorithm which doesn't count all of the references projectphp mentions. The SERPs don't appear to be very different - at least not in the top 10 results, so I wouldn't bother myself about it too much.
