June 30th, 2007, 02:18 PM #1Different site:example.com For IE and Firefox
Will the title says it all. I have been seeing different results for some time now when using the site:example.com search in Google. The same site has 49 pages in the index for IE 7 and 55 pages with Firefox.
Sometimes pages don't show in the index but doing "keyword site:example.com" will bring pages up that don't show in the regular site: search and are not marked supplemental.
I know I'm spending way to much time looking at junk like this.
Edit: Another site showing for IE 10 pages in the index and Firefox shows 50.

is it possible that G uses one ip for IE and another for FF? That might be the same result as checking different g databases for the same terms.
can you easily see the ip (FF has a plug in) IE i think you need to use netsat -a
I just checked one listing and got the same results from the same location

I don't do many site: searches, but I see different results for regular searches sometimes. But there may be this confounding variable at work:

They had a thread on this at WMW back in Dec. 2005,
As far as my set up I tried everything except trying to determine the Google IP. I don't have an easy way that can do that.
Firefox is the same with or without the G toolbar installed. I had 2 different PCs to test that. I used the user agent switcher and it made no difference.
IE 7 shows different than Firefox and it has the G toolbar installed.
Cookies seem to be a big factor in IE results. Disabling them will make IE results = FF results. Disabling FF cookies had no effect. Go figure.
