I came across the edge case when the search engine does not return any value. The prompted message is 'No more results'. I think it would be better to return something like 'No results for your search.' in this case. It's only a detail, but should make it nicer! What do you think? [http://i.imgur.com/UxfNxTr.png]

It depends, because if your search query gives at least an Instant Answer that message is ok. If no IA nor a normal link result is returned, then yes that message could be changed.

In the case I stumbled upon there was not IA either. That's a good point to have in mind though.

Good idea - this could be made a bit more friendly. I like the GitHub 404 page: https://github.com/404
Something like that would be very cool.
