Google cheats?

You can't do without searching the web these days.    Have you ever clicked to the last page of the search results?

I searched for something today and Google returned 576,000 results.    I clicked, one page at a time, to the last page which showed results 851-858 and I saw, as usual, "...repeat the search with the omitted results included...".    So I clicked that link and I have this time 579,000 results.

Again I clicked to the end but this time I could only get to 991-1000 results then there was nothing more showing, not even the "...repeat the search..." link.

Where are the other 578,000 results promised?

Research revealed that most people found their answers within the first and a half page.    Do they just fake a large number randomly?
