We all know of Google and more than likely we all understand that currently they are the leaders within the search engines community. Google understands that to stay top of their market they need to be continually developing and offering new facilities, tools and technologies.
One of the oldest tools that Google presents is the ability to do more advanced searches from their website. They allow you to search for something within a specific website, see how many websites link to another and so on.
All of these advanced searches can be found on the Google website, but here is a brief snapshot of some of the most useful:
If you include [site:] in your query, Google will restrict the results to those websites in the given domain. For instance, [help site:www.google.com] will find pages about help within www.google.com. [help site:com] will find pages about help within .com urls. Note there can be no space between the "site:" and the domain.
The query [link:] will list webpages that have links to the specified webpage. For instance, [link:www.google.com] will list webpages that have links pointing to the Google homepage. Note there can be no space between the "link:" and the web page url.
The query [related:] will list web pages that are "similar" to a specified web page. For instance, [related:www.google.com] will list web pages that are similar to the Google homepage. Note there can be no space between the "related:" and the web page url.
The query [define:] will provide a definition of the words you enter after it, gathered from various online sources. The definition will be for the entire phrase entered (i.e., it will include all the words in the exact order you typed them).
