Does the average person even care if the search results are a 1,000,000 or just 1,000?
Wouldn't do any good if they did care. You can only see the first 1000. 990 if you're viewing 30/page. Someone decided that "1,900,000,000 results" sounds more impressive than "over 1000 results" and gambled that not many people would call their bluff.
