If you happen to miss the www2007 talk "Efficient Search Engine Measurements" by Ziv Bar-Yossef and Maxim Gurevich you should go and read the paper.
The paper describes an efficient and accurate method of estimating various properties of the search engine such as the size of the document collection. It does so through the standard query interface. I will not do it justice if I try to describe the details so go and read it.
