Results 1-10 of 100 gazillion

I was doing some ego surfing today. You know the kind, where you search your own name /site in major search engines, to see whether you appear in the top 10 results (for the curious people out there, mine did appear in the top 10. Yaay!).


The one thing that still puzzles me is, why do search engines show you the insanly large number of total matches for your query. Who cares about the total number of matches? Does anyone go thru all the results? Probably not. People would check out the first 2-3 pages, and if they cannot find what they are looking for they would either change their query or try with a different search engine.

I would rather have the search engine just show me the a total of 5 result pages with 10/20 results.
