All Information On a Specific Site
When you want to find all available information on a particular website, you can use one of the following search operators:
cache: technorati.com - displays the latest version of technorati.com in Google’s cache; in other words, it tells you when a particular web page has been last indexed by Google. (Syntax: no space after colon!)
related: youtube.com - will give a list of all webpages on any site that are (topically) related to youtube.com. (Syntax: no space after colon!)
info:amazon.com (or id:amazon.com) - will provide all available information that Google stores on amazon.com. (Syntax: no space after colon!)
In fact, when you type info:amazon.co.uk in search, Google will come up with the following:
Google can show you the following information for this URL:
* Show Google’s cache of amazon.co.uk
* Find web pages that are similar to amazon.co.uk
* Find web pages that link to amazon.co.uk
* Find web pages from the site amazon.co.uk
* Find web pages that contain the term “amazon.co.uk”
Actually, the items in the list correspond to the following search queries:
As you can see, info operator gives you the most comprehensive information about a particular webpage, including the results produced by cache and related described above. Therefore, if you memorise the syntax for info and use it, you won’t need to remember any other operators to get a full information about any web page.
Specific Information On Any Site
Operators in this section will help you to find all web pages that contain a specific information you are looking for; not only this concerns text on those pages, but also their meta tags, URLs and even links (both internal and external).
inanchor:online games - searches for all webpages that contain links with either the words online or game (or both) in the anchor text. Those may actually be present in different anchors. If you want them to be in the same anchor text, enclose the phrase in quotes, i.e. type inanchor:”online games”
intext:search engine optimization - will find all webpages that include either of the words search, engine or optimization in the text. Similarly, if you want all of those words to be in text of the same page, enclose the phrase in quotes.
inurl:blog monetization - finds all web documents that contain either of the words blog or monetization in the URL of the webpage. If you want them both in URL and next to each other, surround the words by quotes.
intitle:personal finance - finds all webpages that include either of the words personal or finance in the title tag. Again, if you want all words to be in the page title, enclose them in quotes.
Finally, there are similar variation of all the four operators listed above, namely:
Essentially they do the same job, except that prefix all means that all the words after colon should be present within the same anchor, page text, URL or title. Finally, if you want those word to go next to each other - enclose the phrase in quotes.Did you like this? If so, please bookmark it, RSS feed.
