To be honest, Wolfram|Alpha is not THAT big at Google. I got 473000 hits for
wolfram alpha, but if I look at hits 451-469, none of them refer to the
Wolfram|Alpha project. If I put "Wolfram Alpha" (with citation marks) I get
exactly 337 hits today. But that is at least more than 42 (base ten).

Best regards

I made the point to the Wikipedia editor that removed the entry ( 
Accounting4Taste) that a Google search of "Wolfram Alpha" generated 2.1 
million hits and that any technology which is generating 2.1 million 
Google hits before it is officially released, must be conceived by many 
to have significant importance.

He/she accepted this, and the page has now been restored.

So if someone who knows about the technology can edit the Wikipedia page

you can now do so.
