Google's Site:Search Function

Last Update: February 24, 2017

Most of us use Google.com to search the web and do research, but what if you just want to search a specific website for a term? Google has a search function called site:search. With site:search you can search a specific website for any word or phrase and even narrow that down to get exactly the information that you need.

For example, say you want to search just the Wealthy Affiliate website. First you go to Google.com, then in the search box type site:wealthyaffiliate.com. This brings up about 352,000 results. Then you can narrow it down by entering the term or phrase you want to find. Say you want to find all mentions of the word "Military" on the Wealthy Affiliate website. You would enter site:wealthyaffiliate.com Military in the search box. This gets you down to 1,470 results. Then you can further refine your results by entering additional words. Say you only want the mention of Military in 2017. You would enter site:wealthyaffiliate.com Military 2017. This gets you down to 113 results.

Another way you can use site:search. Say you want to see all the Site Rubix websites. You can enter site:siterubix.com in the Google search box and it will display all of the Site Rubix websites. You can then narrow it down by entering the words that you're searching for after site:siterubix.com.

I hope this information helps you in your research.

To your success, Kevin
