How long is the great wall of China?

The second in my series of Popular Searches is How long is the great wall of china This term is searched for on average of 1001 times a day.

The URL’s howlongisthegreatwallofchina .net, and .org are available. Though someone has the .com it is parked. this means that if someone has  a little spare time they could easily make a one page information site on how long is the great wall of china and get to number one in the rankings. They would then get about 500 visitors a day. I’d guess a site like that would make about $15 a month on adsense/Chitika. So for 30 mins work, and a $9 investment you coulod probably make about $150 a year.

Anyway back to the question: how long is the great wall of china? The wall is four thousand miles long between Shanhaiguan and Lop Nur. In total the wall is 4,160 miles. For those who are metric then the wall of china is 6700km in length.

Other facts about the wall: three million people died during it’s construction. The name in Chinese is Wànl? Chángchéng, this means ‘wall of ten thousand Li (Chinese measurement of length; about half a KM).  At the maximum the great wall is thirty feet wide. It cannot be seen from the moon as it is far too thin; it being the equivalent of looking at a hair from a distance of two miles!
