Most of the times, we are searching for some particular information in a site itself, but not able to track that page. Hence, we try the site’s own search feature, but still don’t get that exactly. What to do then?
Well, now you can use search for a particular website, as well.
There are 3 methods to limit the search results to a particular site.
1. Enter the site’s Address URL in google search, and hit enter to get whether google provides a search box for that site or not,
If Google does that, then you can simply type your query in that search box, to search within that particular website. (This feature is available to a few websites – with high search volumes, not all)
2. Now if step 1 fails, you can force Google to search within the particular website, by its Advanced Search feature,
Enter your desired question in the search-box – all these words, as shown below,
Now scroll down a little, and enter the URL / name of that website in Search within a site or domain text-box,
Hit the Advanced Search button to get the search results from the entered website itself.
3. Though the above methods are also useful, but the best way to get search results from a particular website is to use a operator named site: within the search queries. Type your query as usual, add the site:MicroSoft.com thereafter, to get all the results from Microsoft.com website itself. Please note there is no space between website name and site: operator.
For your information, the search queries can also be used on Bing and Yahoo.
