Google Tricks (for noobs)

Discussion in 'Google' started by frenchmen77, Dec 11, 2005.

    I'm still kinda new to running a website, but here are some tricks I should have known from the beginning

    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

    allinanchor:keyword : list results ordered by number of anchor texts as keyword
    @www.domain.com : Displays all links to the page, better than link command
