I'm trying to find on Alltheweb how many pages i have indexed. I get two different answers using these two formulas :
1- url.all:www.example.com site:www.example.com

2- +site:www.example.com +url.all:www.example.com

Can you tell me the difference between them?

Thank you for your help

Tim

It should not make a difference and does not with smaller sites. With larger sites that I tried it can sometimes make a slight difference. ATW uses the "and" operator by default in the query box and what you are doing is issuing a hard "and". If you issue a query for the URL investigator by typing in www.xyz.com into the search box you can get site information and one of the links actually creates this specific query using the first syntax that you specified.

Thanks for your answer Tim. But can you break down the two formulas for me so that i can understand the difference?

On my site, i have a difference of 250 pages. That's alot considering that I go from 16 to 266 pages depending.

Thank you.
