Google advanced searching

Tiered of searching for specific doc, pdf or mp3 ??? Google may not always help you....what will you do when google is not giving you what you want..... if u search little wisely whole internet become free........ ;)
as you know Google is world’s most popular and powerful search engine which has the ability to accept pre-defined commands as inputs and produce unbelievable results. This enables malicious users like hackers, crackers, and script kiddies etc to use Google search engine extensively to gather confidential or sensitive information which are not visible through common searches.

some basic them are :

intitle:  ----
The “intitle:” syntax helps Google restrict the search results to pages containing that word in the title. For
example, “intitle: song_name download” (without quotes) will return links to those pages that has the word
"song_name" in their title, and the word "download" anywhere in the page.
If one has to query for more than one word in the page title then in that case “allintitle:” can be used instead of “intitle” to get the list of pages containing all those words in its title. For example using “intitle: login intitle: password” is same as querying “allintitle: login password”

inurl: ---
The “inurl:” syntax restricts the search results to those URLs containing the search keyword. For
example: “inurl: passwd” (without quotes) will return only links to those pages that have "passwd" in the
Similarly, if one has to query for more than one word in an URL then in that case “allinurl:” can be used
instead of “inurl” to get the list of URLs containing all those search keywords in it. For example: “allinurl:
etc/passwd“ will look for the URLs containing “etc” and “passwd”. The slash (“/”) between the words will
be ignored by Google.

site: ---
The “site:” syntax restricts Google to query for certain keywords in a particular site or domain. For
example: “exploits” (without quotes) will look for the keyword “exploits” in those
pages present in all the links of the domain “”. There should not be any space between
“site:” and the “domain name”.

filetype: ---
This “filetype:” syntax restricts Google search for files on internet with particular extensions (i.e. doc, pdf
or ppt etc). For example: “filetype:doc site:gov confidential” (without quotes) will look for files with “.doc”
extension in all government domains with “.gov” extension and containing the word “confidential” either in
the pages or in the “.doc” file. i.e. the result will contain the links to all confidential word document files on
the government sites.

link: ---
“link:” syntax will list down webpages that have links to the specified webpage. For Example:
“link:” will list webpages that have links pointing to the my blogs (tricks n tips) homepage.
Note there can be no space between the "link:" and the web page url.

related: ---
The “related:” will list web pages that are "similar" to a specified web page. For Example:
“” will list web pages that are similar to the Securityfocus homepage. Note
there can be no space between the "related:" and the web page url.

cache: --
The query “cache:” will show the version of the web page that Google has in its cache. For Example:
“” will show Google's cache of the Google homepage. Note there can be
no space between the "cache:" and the web page url.
If you include other words in the query, Google will highlight those words within the cached document. For
Example: “ guest” will show the cached content with the word "guest"

intext: ---
The “intext:” syntax searches for words in a particular website. It ignores links or URLs and page titles.
For example: “intext:exploits” (without quotes) will return only links to those web pages that has the
search keyword "exploits" in its webpage.

phonebook: --
“phonebook” searches for U.S. street address and phone number information. For Example:
“phonebook:Lisa+CA” will list down all names of person having “Lisa” in their names and located in
“California (CA)”. This can be used as a great tool for hackers incase someone want to do dig personal
information for social engineering.

  1. AppGenerate was created by a group of iOS, Android, and HTML5 developers who decided it was time for anyone to be able to build their own mobile apps. We believe the mobile revolution is here. In 2011, retailers like Amazon received more traffic from mobile devices than they did desktop and laptop computers. Just imagine that it's not just a big slice of traffic, it's more than 50%. Just like the dawn of the Internet revolution, if your business doesn't have a presence in mobile, you'll be left behind, or worse, you won't even exist.
