    I know it's probably a waste of time to speculate about a beta product, but I was just curious if anyone else had investigated some behaviour I've noticed.
    SEMrush
    For many searches, say it starts out at 1,000 results....by the time you get to page 12 or 14, the total will often shrink to less than half that. Some times it doesn't get reduced at all, other times it goes down by 90%. Has anyone out there tried to figure out if there is any significance to the secondary total number? Could it be taking out 'similar' results like Google does?

    That sounds like a bug in the software.

    I vote bug too.
    Have seen the diminishing count on every search I have drilled through since the tech preview.
    BUT, tonight they are all working with a page count of 10. Setting to 50 throws it off again.

    It does appear they fixed the erroneous page 1 link on sub-pages.
