Speedy Search 2: Some Google Tricks and Hints

July 9, 2007 at 6:32 pm Leave a comment

These are things you type into the Google search bar to get better search results. Play with them to get a better idea in what they do.

Also, I posted a video I made showing cool tricks, easter eggs and funny things Google has.

1. link:www.yoursite.com – Show’s you some/most of the links google counts to your page. Handy to find out who is linking to you, or whos linking to the competition

2. related:www.yoursite.com – find sites google deems related to any given site

3. site:www.yoursite.com – search the pages of a specific site

4. allinurl: shows only pages with all terms in the url

5. inurl: like allinurl, but only for the next query word.

6. allintitle: shows only results with terms in title.

7. intitle: kind of like allintitle, but only for the next word. “intitle:webmasterworld google” finds only pages with webmasterworld in the title, and google anywhere on the page.

8. cache:url gives you googles cashed (what google has on record) of a site

9. info:url will give you some info about a given site

10. spell: – does a spellcheck (you don’t have to do this, google will spellcheck any words searched)

11. stocks: does a search for stocks

12. filetype: does a search for a specific file type, or, if you put a – in front of it, it won’t list any results with that filetype

13. daterange: is supported in Julian date format only. 2452384 is an example of a Julian date.

14. maps: shortcut to do a google maps search

15. phone: searches for anything that looks like a phonenumber

16. allinlinks: searches only within links, not text or title

17. allintext: searches only within text of pages, but not in the links or page title
