Do you think something went wrong with Google this year?

Complex patents, a huge server farm, lots of mathematicians ...

and then look at this result:


Results 1 - 51 of about 1

What is your opinion?

It's a bug, of course. Google's routine that estimates the total number of pages on a site: query can seem to have more trouble with smaller website. On a 5,000 page site or a 500,000 page site you wouldn't even miss 50 pages!

It's also good to remember that the site: operator is a reporting function and not the core of Google's search product. As such, precision in those numbers is definitely NOT a top priority for Google.

I would love a result of 1-51 of about 1 then the 1-9 of about 0 that i get. :)

Lately, I am also often finding that clicking the link to show "omitted results" leads to less results being shown, not more.

i have found that as well, thanks for reminding me g1smd, thats how i usually get the 1-9 of about 0, kind of silly...

There are several datacentres with this behaviour.

It doesn't seem to happen on all of them.
