Is there a limit to the number of pages that Google can index from a single search query?  The largest search engine available on the entire Internet, Google’s search algorithm seeks out pages based on returns given from select keywords and keyword densities.  In this video below, you can see Google webmaster Peter Linsley.

The answer to this question is that there is no set limit upon Google’s index.  They go through millions if not billions of different pages in order to get the necessary search quarry.  A site that contains the necessary information or content will be put up no matter how many pages have come in before or after.

The rankings of a site that shows up on the Google search index depends on several factors.  The keywords tagged by the administrator will determine the rank of all search returns, while the actual content (including keyword density and location) on the page plays a factor as well.  Sites that are browsed more consistently than others return higher rankings, while those that get only a paltry few views per month very quickly fall to the bottom of the indexing list.
