There is a way to search google without "getting the first page of ads"
or the First 10 Search results.

Create an HTML file (example filename: google.html)
with the following text:
<form method="get" action="://" target="_blank">  
<input type="text" name="q" size=31 maxlength=255 value="">  
<input type="submit" name="sa" value="Search Google">
<input type="hidden" name="start" value="10">

Open that file in any Web Browser of your choice.
You can search for anything and bypass the First 10 results.

Your search results will appear in a new window.

Hope that helps.

i remember seeing in the book "Google Hacks" a way to make up to 200
results appear on one page, just cant remember how its done... you
have to add something to the URL.

It might also be that you've got some spyware installed on your
computer; some of the more predatory ones actually substitute their
own results as the first page of google search results, with the
'real' results only coming on the second page- which sounds like what
you have.  ZDNet wrote an article about this -

I would suggest downloading a program such as Spybot Search and
Destroy (; at the best, it will help
identify and remove this problem.  At the worst, you'll know your
computer is spyware-free.
