Google permits you to restrict your search (making it narrower) by using the
site:example.org element. The same syntax does not work in Yahoo, but as
they do site-specific searches, I bet they support that ability too (see
advanced search options).
I have just tried searching over multiple (limited in scape) sites in Google,
but this does not appear to work. Your best solution would probably be to
script (hand-craft) some individual site searches and then aggregate these
in one way or another. A number like 1,000, however, is somewhat daunting.
Of course, there is also the possibility that something obvious evades me
