After making a few searches like this it told me about that search attack thing too; but before that i tested a few things:
1000000..10000000000 doesn't work indeed
100000..10000000000 doesn't work
but 99999..10000000000 works
down to 1..10000000000

So i think it might be related to the number of digits.

Isn't there a dot missing?

1000000...10000000000 works fine

it doesnt matter..
Google should allow searching this type of searches..and not block them

BTW, it blocks me too.. :/

and for some reason, it seems like the search is been taken inside Google servers.

anyone knows why?
maybe Tony? :P

Works for me when putting 3 periods between the numbers. Here is what is in my search box: 1000000...10000000000

The Google help page shows numrange searches only with two periods:
google.com/help/refinesearch.h ...

the minima being set for first parameter appears to be "99999" – whereas the maxima appears can be seeded to exponential factors.

its a wierd bug!!

Get rid of the google.com/sorry/?continue= bitof the url, and the search works, but with no results

Officially, two dots ".." is Google's numrange operator, which searches for any number in that range. Three dots seems to work too tho?

with 3 dots, it works... but not or any number in that range i think.

Using the numeric range operators, like in the advanced search, gives results.
The code in the serp to get the next page gives the error, but one could adjust "start" in the url.

google.com/search?as_q=&as ...

this issue is very odd!

I played with negative ranges and found an interesting query [-999999999999..999999] which returns an error page with a message about preventing automated searches and a prompt for a visual code. However typing the correct code doesn't return a results page but a new error page again and again.

credit card numbers, maybe?

That´s indeed the credit card numbers. Google had an issue a while ago showing credit card numbers. They are preventing searching for them for a while now.

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

but why?
and whats Google got to do with credit cards?

Rewording the search
from 1000000..10000000000
to 1e+6..1e+10
seems to work and the serp next page works also.

google.com/search?q=1e%2B6..1e ...

George R [PersonRank 10]

The following wording also works, and may be easier.

1000000e0..10000000000e0

google.com/search?q=1000000e0. ...

A search for 4049000000000000...4049999999999999 (one of the ranges used for Visa cards) returns 80 results, but there are no obvious credit card details amongst the returned pages. It seems there's some kind of "censorship" going on here.

Search for anything you like, provided it's not a sixteen-digit number on a page that includes terms such as "credit card" and "visa" (or something like that)?

Also, I got a capcha screen after displaying five pages of the search results.
