If you Googled "How many times had she", no wonder there weren't any results. It's not a complete sentence.

The Corpus of Contemporary American English gives 49 examples of that phrase. It would probably be a better Google search without the pronoun, which would allow for other pronouns and names, and which gives 358,000 results, including false positives.

PS It may also have something to do with personal search settings as I get pages of results for that exact search phrase. Did you put it between "enter search here" or not? If you put it between the double speech/quotation marks, Google searches for the exact phrase.
