An Interesting Fact About Google ResultsDecember 5, 2012 9:07 am
Here is an interesting fact we spotted about Google Search Results:
Google never serves up more than 1000 results.
Try this, for example:
You will see this response from Google:
“Sorry, Google does not serve more than 1000 results for any query. (You asked for results starting from 1000.)
Your search – hello world – did not match any documents.
•Try different keywords.”
So much for ‘one followed by one hundred zeros’ – from the Wikipedia entry for Google:
“Eventually, they changed the name to Google, originating from a misspelling of the word “googol”, the number one followed by one hundred zeros, which was picked to signify that the search engine wants to provide large quantities of information for people. ”
