Sites small & large should and do use the Google webmaster forums as a first stop for assistance with search. If you think something is too sensitive to share, describe the issue generally. You can then do a "Private Reply" follow-up as appropriate.

The "More results" button will appear for searchers using the Google app for iOS & Android or major mobile web browsers other than Chrome for iOS -- support for that is coming. As for ads, the button will load more organic results first, then ads when relevant underneath those.

We've launched a new “More results” button that makes it easier & faster to get more search results on mobile. Now additional listings load below the ones already being viewed, rather than the old "Next" button that would load an entirely new page....
