I have often wondered if I am doing well on search rankings for competitive search phrases. One way of looking at it (but certainly not the best - I know Wordtracker and Overture suggestion are better) is the number of search results Google lists.

Which search phrase would get the most search results within a Google search? (the number on the top right?) That is not counting what google sees as stopwords (the, a, and..)

Just a few:

new copyright ---- 7.150.000
copyright free --- 6.690.000
new free --------- 6.850.000
new page --------- 6.490.000
last updated ----- 6.390.000
advanced search -- 4.790.000
forum information - 4.360.000
tv news ----------- 4.100.000
search engine ----- 3.330.000

You see I get bored just after Google updates :)

Happily enough, there are twice as many "love you"s as there are "love me"s

Anyone beat my "and the" quoted phrase or [you all] combo yet? Eh?

"There are to many results with nearly the same number of hits"

My thoughts also. They are hitting some kind of max somehow. I can see the max is not a given value but a max all the same.

ok i think ill skip a few bar conferences if a search phrase is http of a s, they aint words :)

but i guess (maybe even worthy of a new thread!!!) we could see who can get as close to the number of pages in google (i.e. 2 billion)

Remember there is a difference in Google's number of results in how "clean" you are searching !

can not - with no filters (preferences) 8.110
can not - with safe filter 8.080

Or in other words there are 30.000 pages in a specific un-safe category, listing that they explicitly "can not" do something ;)

This 57 message thread spans 2 pages: 57
