Feedster {noearlycompletion}

Scott Johnson: Like many search engines, the values that Feedster displays for the number of search results a particular query produces is an estimate. [cut] How did I know that the estimate was off? Well I used the search modifier {noearlycompletion}. This is a search optimization hint which says to Feedster "Actually perform this search to its fullest extent before returning the results and the total number of results".
