[TIP] Refining your Searches
« on: July 12, 2007, 03:01:10 PM »
Lets say that you want to search for a Widget, but you want to only look for it on XYZ.com. Just enter the following in your Google search box:

Widget site:www.XYZ.com  and you will only get search results from that particular site. (the bolding has been added for emphasis)

You will be surprised how often this tip comes in handy.
