I'm pretty sure that nobody actually understands that anymore, in any
more than handwaving levels.
I have a nice Chrome extension called IPvFoo that actually tracks the IP
addresses contacted during the load of the displayed page. I'll let you make
a guess as to how many unique IP addresses were contacted during a load
145, at least half of which appeared to be analytics. And that's only the
hosts that were contacted by my laptop for HTTP, and doesn't count DNS, or
load-balancing front ends, or all the back-end boxes. As I commented over on
NANOG, we've gotten to a point similar to that of AT&T long distance, where 60%
of the effort of connecting a long distance phone call was the cost of
accounting and billing for the call.
