How does Super News order its search results?

The web is constantly evolving, from one hour - to the next. The Super News results are ordered by Publication Date, giving you the most recent news first! A search at 5pm may return different results than you had earlier in the day.

How come the Thumbnail Previews are not loading?

It's normal for Thumbnail Providers to return "queued thumbnails" initially; ( this happens on sites that are NOT yet archived ). By the time you copy/paste the code into a Post and publish it; they'll all be available, so no worries :-)

ShrinkTheWeb® is giving me a Limit Exceeded message, why?

At the time of this writing, ShrinkTheWeb® has a limit of 250k thumbnails per month. There is also a limit of 5k discoveries per month. In other words, you get 250k total, and up to 5k new ( previously unarchived ) thumbnails, on a monthly basis. If you really need it, there is a premium option available that increases your limitations. For further details, please check this page.

WebSnapr® is giving me a Limit Exceeded message, why?

At the time of this writing, WebSnapr® has a limit of 100k thumbnails per month. There is also a limit of 80 requests per IP address / per hour. In other words, if you've been searching a LOT; you may hit this hourly limit. If you really need it, there is a premium option available that increases your limitations. For further details, please check this page.

Is it possible to get larger lists, with more results?

Unfortunately, no. The Google® API only provides 8 results per page, with a maximum of 8 pages ( so that's 64 total results ) returned for each of your searches. There is no way to increase this upper limit. Google® purposely imposes this limit, and there is no way around it; short of working a deal with Google® directly. All of that being said, Super News DOES integrate a feature that allows you to + Add Results to an existing Result Set. Using this technique, you can build lists of unlimited size.
