Go to 'advanced search', leave the query field blank, select a language, make sure the 'Offensive Content Filter' is off, and click on 'Search'. Please do note the remark at the end of my posting. Since yesterday the home page of AlltheWeb displays a new value for indexed pages:

'Currently searching 2,142,833,819 web pages'

changed into

'Currently searching 3,151,743,117 web pages'

So maybe the database is now stable and I can try it once more.
