How to use Google to search your favorite website!

This question was answered on July 13, 2001. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Most website have a search option that allows you to find information on that site by typing in a search phrase In many cases, the site's search engine is lacking any real capabilities or just plain gives you too many results For instance, the Microsoft website search engine is OK, but I prefer the results that I can get by using Google to search.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could harness the power of <a href="http://www.google.com" target="_blank"><font color="#003399">Google's</font></a> search engine with virtually any website?

Well, you can! Simply add "site:wwww.nameofthesite.com".

If I were looking for "upgrading" information on the Microsoft website, I would type <a href="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=upgrading site:www.microsoft.com&btnG=Google Search" target="_blank"><font color="#003399">"upgrading site:www.microsoft.com"</font></a> in Google and viola!

Give it a try on sites that have large amounts of information, like Yahoo!, AOL or Amazon.
