Google Search Secrets

Postby Babbman » Tue, Jul 17 2007, 08:26 AM

Something I found while doing some real work...

If you need to search for something at a specific site using Google, (i.e ikeclub.org), use the site qualifier in the search term.

For example, from the google search bar, use the following search term:

team site:ikeclub.org

This will search only the ikeclub.org site for the term. This can be used with any site in the net..

What you say is true. To clarify though:

"Search" at the top of the page allows you to search our entire forum.
Control+F allows you to search the page you are looking at.

thingy site:ikeclub.org
Allows you to search for stuff at ikeclub.org in the forum and outside of the forum (there isn't much). It also allows you to use the advanced search tools of Google. For example, click here.

If you substitute another site for ikeclub.org you can search any site on the web using Google, even sites without a "search" box or a poorly done search box.
