Tools – Use Google Search Engine
Most of us use Google to search the web and do research, but what if you just want to search a specific informational term or just a website search for research? The Google Google search engine has several different search functions. Take for instance doing a search with ” ” around them such as a keyword search for Webdesign, you would first type in a normal Google search of Web design then you will most likely get a million different options however if we just change the search to be more keyword driven then we get more of an exact search. An example would be “Web design”
Differences from the example above:
Web design gets about 499,000,000 results (0.90 seconds) but is a really spread out search.
“Web Design” gets about About 120,000,000 results (0.99 seconds) and is more itemized to fit your search.
Use Website Search in Google’s Search Engine
Now let’s look at searching for a certain website, if you were to type in the website’s name then you would get the most recent information from that website or about that website but say for instance that you were looking for certain information from that website instead of just a random search. If yu were to just open Google then enter the website’s name then you would not get the information that you ar looking for however you can.
All you have to do is type site: then the website’s name then you will get a more accurate search of information. Let’s show an example of what this looks like. In the example, I will be using WealthyAffiliate.com and myself for the for this example, this way you can see that you can itemize things down to your liking.
WealthyAffiliate.com gets about 4,920,000 results (0.64 seconds)
site:WealthyAffiliate.com gets about 350,000 results (0.33 seconds)
site:WealthyAffiliate.com training about 29,800 results (0.51 seconds)
site: WealthyAffiliate.com Shane gets about 462 results (0.44 seconds)
Here is a picture of the results from site:WealthyAffiliate training 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.
I hope this helps give you a better understanding of how to find exactly what you are looking for and please leave me a comment so that I can hear your thoughts on this topic. Was it helpful?

Thanks for your comments,
You really explain Google searches well. I already knew about using ” ” on either side of a keyword search, but I didn’t know about using site: before a specific search term for a website.
I guess most people, myself included, really don’t use the tools that Google provides as efficiently as we could.
Thanks for the information.
Thank you for the kind words and I am happy to help you understand how to use Google better for a keywords search itemized searches. I will be happy to help you out fi you need anything.
Have you tried out some of the techniques yet?
These are some great tips on using Google’ search engine tools.
I never thought of using the “site:” modifier with a keyword that seems like it would be useful when doing research.
Another one I like to use is “inurl:” when looking for guest post opportunities. I then use my keyword + guest post and similar terms.
Nice to hear from you. I believe from my experience that we are unaware of half of what Google has to offer and the better we understand then the better out knowledge is about whatever it is that you happen to be searching for in Google.
What is been your biggest learning from using different search methods or Google tools?
Very informative article.
I did not know that google had these kind of options that you could use to narrow down a search or using search terms to get even more specific in the search. I’m glad i came across your information, sometimes doing google searches do not come up with the results that I am looking for.
This will help me find what I am looking for much faster!

Thanks for this information. It will make it a lot easier to find little bits of information that I need from one specific website.

Very interesting! I use Google every day like so many people and I wasn’t aware of using website search in Google. It’s good to know about the specifics of my website and how I can put the information to use. Are there any other “tricks” you can share about Google search?
There are a few more quick ad easy tricks to help people grow and understand better, I will be adding a few more articles this weekend to aid in everyone’s effort and hopefully give some more insight to how CheapStartUpBusinesscom is here to help.
I must admit that I didn’t know there were so many other uses for google other than just searching for information. I like how easily you were able to explain and break down each way someone can use google to enhance their search. I plan on trying some of what you taught so that I may get used to it.
Thanks for this article!

Should you always put ” ” quotations around your keywords when using Google search engines? I never thought of that before this article. Where did you get your information on this article? Was any of this covered in the Wealthy Affiliate training? I can see where .com in your examples is a lot broader search than the site: that’s a lot more of a targeted search. Very interesting article I’ll have to implement it into my keyword search as a tool.
I have learned a lot from Wealthy Affiliate however this tool or method of using Google to search is something I picked up from some SEO research that I have done in the past. There is a lot of tools that Google offers and ways to use them, I guess you have to think of it like this….Google has to use there own data to create a better search engine for us.
Other search engine probably have similar features but I am a Google kind of guy….since day one for me.
