How many pages are actually indexed?

    Do a search for site:anydomain.com

    Page 1 shows for example...

    About 13,400 results (0.23 seconds)

    The last page just shows...

    Page 3 of 212 results (0.10 seconds)

    Which number is correct and why does Google do this??

    The 13,400 results is correct. I had that situation before and actually looked whether or not pages not listen in those 3 page results were indexed or not. And they were.

    Does the site have a lot of duplicate(ish) content? I've seen that where they don't bother with the overhead of filtering out results that are things like similar content until the user goes past the first page of results.

    As long as Google, or any search engine for that matter, gets people to ANY page of my site, I'm happy. :)

    No, it's not!

    The most accurate way to count indexed pages is moving to the last page of serp while googling site:sample.com

    The number you see at the first page is approximate one.

    This means you have too many unimportant pages like profiles for forums which google know they won't be useful to list in search results.

    I think for a large and big site, both of them is aproximate, not an exact number of search.
    But for a small site or new domain, google can find it the exact number..
    See when G is not sure about the exact search result he showing "about ..."
