  • Never really put much interest in page # and the rest.. but SEO pager looks cool.

  • GoldBook

    If the Google search results showed 10 million results of which the first 10 are listed on the search results page, when and how can I see the last 10 results. The most I have be able to see were the first 1000 results. Are there more results that I can view somewhere. What about the last thousand???
    So much for pagination!
