Some search engines let you search URL's
specifying that a keyword must be present in
the address of the returned pages. For example, both Yahoo
use the now somewhat standard
search term "inurl:keyword" to
specify that returned results
must have "keyword" somewhere in the URL. Google also enables use of
the term "site:sitename" to narrow your search to a single site.
You can use this technique to search a site
that doesn't provide its
own search engine by composing your search
as normal, and then
a URL keyword to limit the search to the site. For example, the search
function on this site uses this
feature to invoke the Google search engine to search LivingInternet.com.
The form of the URL search command might be different for each search engine.
Where supported it's usually described on the site's advanced search page,
where known in the capability summaries in the search
A few example URL searches are shown below:
AND inurl:yahoo -- Yahoo search for pages that have the
word "garden" in the text and "Yahoo"
in the URL.
