    Did Google Change the way you can check how many pages are indexed on a site?
    site:website.com use to return how many pages a site had, and it doesn't seem to be working over the past few weeks very well. It's showing very low results to a bunch of sites I have. But in GWT, it shows all the pages indexed.

    haha... I don't think so. My site has only 2 million pages indexed.

    Now I'm not saying it doesn't show the pages, what I'm saying is its only showing a fraction of what there really is.

    I don't think there is any changed on google BUT you have changed that yourself.

    Yeah I didn't think it was just me.

    But maybe it has something to do with large number pages?
    Most of my sites are 25k up to 7 million pages.

    as per my experience the method is good for showing how many pages are indexed by google otherwise you can use tools

    What do you use? site:www OR site:siteAddress ? There's a big difference when you use www OR without www .
