for the number of user-accessible pages.

A Google search for "how big is the Internet" turns up some interesting

    "How Big is the Internet"

    Statistics for Dec. 2000:

    Total users:  352.1 Million (US:  135.7m)
    UK growth:  10-15% /month
    Browsers:  MS: 75%, Netscape: 24%

There's always the Netcraft webserver survey:


...listing 27,585,726 websites, which you could look at for growth
trends and extrapolating pages per site.
