Allow users to refine queries in order
to get smaller result set ( it is not likely
that somebody will want to look at 7000 results
at the same time.
You can also bring results back in "chunks" ( maybe
20 - 30 results per page ). Depending on a database
you are using there might be SQL commands to asist with
this, for example PostgreSQL has LIMIT command that
would only bring back specified part of result.
Indexes help for search speed ;-)
