Yes. A typical Google search gives something like this at the top of the page: "2,490,000 results (0.30 seconds)." The reason Google works as well as it does (and it's a minor miracle) is that they have a very sophisticated algorithm for ranking results, so you don't have to go browsing through 2,490,000 links. Today it's a problem of too much data and a shortage of information. (Knowledge is another step entirely, and wisdom, well that's completely up to you….)
