Google Books Generates Results in No Time

If you do a search on Google Book Search, Google says it found the results in "0.00 seconds". Even for advanced queries, Google's performance is amazing.

Does this happen because Google doesn't index too many* books or it's just a bug?

* A search for a common word like "they" returns 3,520,600 results.


  1. Well, considering that a quick search for "they" on Google web search found "about 2,070,000,000" results, in 0.22 seconds - I'd guess that it's rounded down below the visible display... less than .01 of a second.

  2. Thats a good observation. Who ever you are...
