    Remember that the 100k limit does not refer to page size as images and other external items (ie. scripts) are bypassed.  It means 100k of html.  Although conventional wisdom says there is a 100k limit (or 101k, depending on who you ask), you will sometimes see Google SERPs with cached pages larger than that.  I suspect that to some degree just as Google will spider deeper into a high-ranking site than a low-ranking site, it will also spider deeper into large pages on a high-ranking site than a low-ranking site.

    That is what they used to say "anything over 101k is not indexed" but recently Google's cached page size limit has increased so the 101k may also have increased.  I haven't checked it out yet.

    >Tell me limit of other Search Engines as well

    Last time I looked it was 150k for MSN and 500k for Yahoo.

    These numbers should really be of academic interest only because any page approaching 100k should be split into multiple pages well before it gets there.
