using sleep and then continue just makes the search start from the
first search term like before.. Would it be easier to understand if I
posted sections of my code?

i = 0
k = open('blah', 'w')
domains = ["au", "ca", "nl", "be", "...]
srch = WebSearch(app_id=YahooKey)

while i<200:
    try:
        for domain in domains:
            srch.query = "test site:.%s" % domain
            res = srch.parse_results()
            print >> k, res.total_results_available
            i = i + 1

    except SearchError:

(I currently close then reopen document here then restart i to 0)

Any ideas?
