Stray, here is the code that I just tried:
>>> from xgoogle.search import GoogleSearch
>>> import time
>>> gs = GoogleSearch("inurl:polito")
>>> gs.results_per_page = 100
>>> res = 
>>> while True:
... tmp = gs.get_results()
... if not tmp:
>>> print len(res)
Seems to work for me.
The thing is that Google can show that it has 10 billion results but in reality it will return only 1000 for any search. And if it thinks there are some duplicates in those 1000, then it will return even less. In this case it returned 618 results.

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
