Google Hiding Search Result Pages: Removes Pagination

There are several reports from users that Google has removed the page 2 and so on from the bottom of the Google search results. That is right, Google, for some users, has removed the option to go to a second page of results and the pagination is all gone.

Here is a picture of what some searchers are missing:

Google Page Bar

We have reports of this at Google Blogoscoped Forums, WebmasterWorld & Google Web Search Help.

Some are asking if this is a feature or a bug. I am personally not sure. One person said it only is an issue on IE when going directly to Google.com:

If I search from the toolbar, I still get pagination, but searching directly on google.com gives me related searches but no further pages.

I only see this in IE, using Firefox the pagination links are just there.

I personally cannot replicate it but it is an issue for a nice number of people.

Update: Google told me this is not a feature, but rather a bug. A Google spokesperson said:

This is a bug affecting a small number of users. We will work to resolve it as soon as we can.
