Hello, My heroes,

My issue is,

I am using google cse to search a certain list of websites on the internet...

I came across posts saying that I shouldnt enter more than 20 websites

https://support.google.com/programmable-search/thread/2384961/cse-limited-to-20-domains?hl=en(https://support.google.com/programmable-search/thread/2384961/cse-limited-to-20-domains?hl=en)

https://support.google.com/programmable-search/thread/3082211/cse-domain-limit-reduced-from-5-000-to-20?hl=en(https://support.google.com/programmable-search/thread/3082211/cse-domain-limit-reduced-from-5-000-to-20?hl=en)

Maybe I am misunderstanding... because I am not exactly sure that it has affected me...??
My list is around 200 websites... am I utilizing them all?

I also have another problem and that I am only limited to 10 pages, 10 results per page..
That is a joke...

Can I change that ?

if i cant, is there another service that will give me serious results?

DDG CSE is just this:
https://duckduckgo.com/search_box
which is way too basic..

Gigablast has this:
http://www.gigablast.com/searchfeed.html

Bing has one but they do not provide enough information about it
specifically the limit on the number of results..
all I know that you can enter a maximum of 400 websites in the database If I understand correctly..
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/bing-custom-search/define-your-custom-view#usage-guidelines

Yandex has one, but they dont tell you any thing about its limitations..
https://passport.yandex.ru/auth?retpath=https%3A%2F%2Fsite.yandex.ru%2Fsearches%2Fnew%2F
I am going to need people's help to tell me the missing information regarding these alternative custom search engines.. :)
