Google Max Results - want more

Hi,

Not sure where this should go -

When I do a search on Google it seems I can only view the top 1000 results even though google says it has in the millions.

For example, do a seach on "news" and it says there are 1,690,000,000 pages that match. Try as I might I can only get the first 1000.

Is there a way to view more than just 1000 results with the same query?

Thanks

You might try the &filter=0 appended to the end of the G URL appearing in the address bar after the search is done. This is supposed to remove that line about "some of the search results have been omitted" and "if you want to do the search again click here". Of course I don't have the time to see if that works! ;)

Google doesn't show any more than 100 results and often less than this. Don't forget that Google is a search engine that is designed to help Joe Public find information. Joe would never look all the way through anywhere near 1000 results.

Not perfect but it is useful:
  • Go to the Google Advanced Search page
  • Do lots of advanced searches with different settings (eg date range, only PDFs, exclude *.org, etc)
  • Save all result pages
  • stitch them together

    Easier to do with the SOAP API and 30 minutes of writing some scripts

    No search engine that I am aware of goes beyond 1000 results.
