When I do a site:domain.com search, I am getting 208 results, whereas, when I do a site:domain.com/jobs search I am getting 313 results even though both are from the same domain. Though it was specified in the first search that some search entries were omitted because the entries were similar.. How do I justify the difference?

site:domain.com/jobs is a more specific search so there may be less fitering applied.

The second query came from a different index set.

etc etc

Question is; Why do you need to "justify" a difference? There just is, and that is the way it is with SEs

I get one figure on site: another on site:url/* and yet another with site: +inurl:url but then they are different queries so I should expect a difference.

Rather than focussing on how many pages might be in the index I'm deciding to look at how many pages are actually generating traffic, being in the index and actually getting clicks are too different things totally but the latter is the one that matters!
