I know this is probably a really stupid question, but here goes. Whenever I search for something, say on Google or Amazon, there are always thousands and thousands of pages. My question is, how do I get past 100 pages? That's as far as I can go before it stops. Are there certain settings on my computer or something that I can do? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

It would probably be pointless to go past 100 pages.
Why don't you try refining your search? To give you exactly what you are looking for.

Your computer's a bit short of system memory if it can't get past 100 pages.

System memory has nothing to do with that.

This is your best advice. Just use the keywords your looking for because the more you put into the search bar just adds to the stuff it looks for.

It certainly does with something like Google Images, where it tries to render multiple pages at the same time.

It might slow the process down, but it wouldn't stop the process completely.

It might have something to do with the memory. But I was searching for free books on amazon for my Kindle and that's where I ran into the problem. Thanks for the input!

Change the advanced settings on the Google search page to display 100 results per page?

Well, first I must say your determination to find something is commendable. Indeed, it's downright impressive. I drop the query and re-enter another variant of my search if the 3rd page hasn't popped what I want.

Second though.... If I might suggest a couple things to avoid ever having to get that far? Google and most others support Boolean search functions. If that's chinese for meaning, don't worry...it's very simple to put this way.

If you are searching for something precise and the precision is in the wording and order, put quotes on it. Type in Obama goes to Mexico, for instance, and you're likely to feel like you jumped in the ocean. Type "Sasha Obama" goes to Mexico with only her name in quotes and the last 3 words on their own..and suddenly, you have very very specific results locked more or less onto Sasha and not her Dad or Mom. On google at least. go one step further, if you can, and use "Search Tools" on the left side. Within that, comes a set of date tools. Set yourself a date range for roughly when it happened. Even if it's only the right year...it still narrows things to a very helpful level.

On current event stories, when you need information NOT part of the current event, that date range is invaluable. If you type in, again for an example, 'Russian Warships Head to Syria', you'll get the story about an 11 ship Russian Task Force headed to the Eastern Med. The right date range though...and if you wanted info on when the Admiral K (Their Aircraft Carrier) was there, the very same set of words in the search box will suddenly give you the Admiral K and not the Task Force. Without the date limiting functions of the search engine? I'm not sure 100 pages would be enough.

Click the numbers right at the bottom of the page

look like this

Each number will give you another 100 items.

What ^he^ said.

Although I don't know why you'd want to go past 100 pages. If I can't find what I'm looking for on the first page, I'll modify my search

Thanks all! Like I said, I was mainly asking because I was searching for books on Amazon. That's why I was searching through alot of pages.

You know there may be a conspiracy in this somewhere~ What are they trying to hide after the 100th page? Why would they even tell you there is more that 10,000 results if you can't see number 10,001? Really it is kinda asinine how they say there is three billion search results for some things.. I mean why even tell me that if you aren't going to let me see them all?

I just had a quick look about and it seems that you can set the number of results per page. I think the maximum is 100. Would this give you more results that what you are currently getting?

Apparently you have to turn off streaming results for it to work. Theres some info on it here

Perhaps this has been answered somewhere in this thread, but I will explain how this can be possible.
First off - Look at your URL at the top, all filled with nonsense. Granted it starts with www.google.com...?????????????

So what is the nonsense past the final / ? These are variables used by googles search application. Look closely, and you may even see your search query up there. I will do a search so we can get a test URL to examine.

www.google.com...

Can you tell what I searched for? It was "test"
Here is the URL after I clicked on page 8.
www.google.com...=test&hl=en&prmd=imvns&ei=vlMAUPf3N6Lz0gGhtvnQBw&start=70&sa=N&bav=on.2 ,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=b5216a2189d74558&biw=800&bih=407

Yes, it looks complicated, but it is this URL that will let you get to any page that you want. The important part of this URL is the portion &start=70 - This is the id number of the first result to be read from. From here, it will go on to print the 100 results AFTER this id number. You can change this number. For example, adding a 0 to it to make it &start=700 takes me from page 8 to 71. But, Google does have a limit. I added another 0 to it and got this message:
Sorry, Google does not serve more than 1000 results for any query. (You asked for results starting from 7000
So lets try 999
....same message.

Interesting, you guys could be on to something. I think this just added more fuel to both sides of this conversation
