Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Every time I click "search" button with
in the text box, the results increase by 2000.
So say I have 10,000 results. I click search again, and it goes to 12,000 results. All the way up to 800,000 results, if I keep clicking. Unlimited. Just by continually clicking the search button.
Come back later, and it may be down to 200,000 or so.Click on the search button again, now it's at 202,000, 204,000, etc. All the way up to 800,000 or 1,000,000 if I want.
Anyone else have this problem? I'll record a flash video if you want. It's kinda funny.
The only problem is that this site has never had more than 132,000 pages on it, the file-naming conventions have been stable for several years, and the total number of files on the site have been increasing at a rate of less than five percent a year.
Now if there was a way to convince Google that I had 2,280,000 incoming links instead of 2,280,000 pages, I'd be happy.
I did note that at the start of the latest update that (for several sites) I saw all 4 versions of the URL for each page suddenly relisted in the SERPs even though three of the URLs already used a 301 redirect to the fourth URL.
The problem seemed to mostly disappear again just a few days ago. I didn't make any changes to the sites at all.
