    Default Small number of results shown on Google

    While doing some searches recently suddenly google show me just 2-3 pages of results. Even for terms like best casino bonuses where there are millions of results.

    Has anyone else noticed that or is it something in my settings

    For mobile, the number of results will decrease. They are taking more action albeit slowly on terms that make other companies free money.

    Something tells me in a not so distant future, only adwords may be allowed for highly commercial terms, which makes sense.

    PErhaps it's an optimisation thing and Google decided no-one goes beyond page 3?

    I'm sure that Google will turn this sector into a money making opportunity soon.
    Bidding for limited "organic" positions is surely just around the corner.

    isn't that just called google adwords already?
    limiting the results would suck though, then you have no way of finding out for some lower ranking keywords on what place they are ranking if it's >result 30 i guess.

    I see this sometimes I think it's just a glitch.

    Had the same issue with some U.S search terms, and thought it had something to do with my IP address.

    I tried searching with VPN and get the same result, can't search beyond page 3 sometimes page 5.

    i have just tried searching with an online proxy and also just get 3 pages of results for a keyword like best casino bonuses.
    i'm wondering if it has to do with a certain type of keywords.

    any more keywords found that only produce a couple of pages?

    Google looks like it's drastically limiting the number of results for competitive commercial search terms only.

    I have yet to notice this in the poker niche. However, I will start keeping an eye out for this.

    Can someone post a screenshot so I can see exactly what this limitation looks like? I ask because I searched for "best casino bonuses" as the OP used as an example and I saw 23.5 million results:

    And while I didn't try to verify that 23.5 million results existed, I do see that 10 pages of 10 results (i.e. at least 100) are shown to me for this query:

    Same term that you have used produces just 34 results for me in Switzerland although at the top it says 22.9M

    i've noticed the same thing as well. hopefully they improve their algo soon as there are even spammy sites ranking among the very limited # of results

    I see the same when searching for many long tail keywords. Here is the note from Google on page number 6 for example:

    "In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the 59 already displayed.If you like, you can repeat the search with the omitted results included. "

    I saw that too, but an extra 26 results wont get the 34 results up to 22M. Thing is though why do you guys panic? Have you not had content sitting on page 2, 3 ,5 ,6? Those don't get any clicks or much views.

    Hell even page 1: 7-10 spots barely get any views or clicks and even then the traffic is so diluted and non converting that you are better off without it.

    This depends entirely on the term. High volume terms on page 2 and 3 get clicks. Hell even page 5 can get some clicks, though typically no more than a handful a day.

    There are a few terms I'd club a baby seal to have spots 7-10 for. If you have terms you don't want 1st page results for, just LMK and we'll create the content necessary to rank there :P

    This notice has been around for many, many years. Nothing new.

    Page 1 shows that there are 19,200,000 million results, but only 22 sites are displayed.

    Given that multiple people are seeing this, and others are not (myself included), it might be a good idea if people disclose what country IP address was used in searches. Perhaps it is country specific.

    clicking "repeat the search with the omitted results included" gives only extra 10-20 results. lol
