In[1]:= Limit[Limit[(x^2+y^2)/(Sqrt[x^2+y^2+1]-1),x->0],y->0]

Out[1]= 2

If the order in which the limits are taken or the direction in which you approach the limit matters then you can try to adjust for that.

() versus {} versus [] and capitalization often don't seem to matter with WolframAlpha, but it is critical these be exactly correct with Mathematica. Some Mathematica notation is correctly recognized by WolframAlpha, but others is not.
