How to get your desired search results in Google?
Sometimes you guys worry about your search result, How to get exact search results in Google?while searching for document, pdf and ppt file in Google, it shows you some html or others search result instead of your desired result. So here I am going to give you some tricks and tips about Google search result that will show you your desired search result or document in Google.
How to get Specific file types
File type- *.xls, *.doc, *.pdf *.ps *.ppt *.rtf
Google allows you to search for specific file types, so instead of getting html-files as a result. You can get all types of files whatever you want. First you have to type your file name then Colon (:) then your file extension like *.doc or anything you want.
Example-The search string you would use would be this:
Robotics:doc -It will show you all type of document files.of file name Robotics
How to get your search keyword in website’s url
There is another useful search option is the inurl. This option will allow you to search for a certain word that you want to be in the url. This gives you the opportunity to search for specific directories/folders, especially in combination with the “index of” option, about which I will talk later on.Example-The search string you would would be this:
inurl:engineersmind – It would give you results of website urls that have the word “engineersmind” in the url.
How to get directory listings files and folders
The index of option is another option that isn’t especially thought of by the creators of Google but comes in very handy. If you use the “index of” string you will find directory listings of specific folders on servers.
Example- “index of”Iron man or index.of.Iron man — This would get you many directory listings of Iron man folders. Please don’t forget to use the quotes in this case since you are looking for the entire “index of” string, not just for “index” and “of”.
How to get desired keyword in desired site extension
The site option allows you to come up with results that only belong to a certain domain name
extension or to a specific site. For example one could search for .com sites or news.org sites or .nl sites, but also for results from just one site, but more interesting might be to search for specific military or government websites.
Example- Site:com or site:org Site:com“news” – This would get you many sites having site extension .org or .com with keyword news.
How to get desired keyword names HTML files
Intitle is another nice option. It allows you to search for html files that have a certain word or words in the title. The format would be intitle:keyword. You could check out what words appear in the title of some online control panel or content management system and then search Google for this word with the intitle option, to find these control panel pages.
Combining search options
The above mentioned search options might or might not be known to you, but even though they can amount to some interesting results, it’s a fact that when you start combining them, that’s when Google’s magic starts to show.
Example- You can try this search string:
inurl:nasa.gov filetype:xls “restricted” or this one: site:mil filetype:xls “news” or maybe
site:mil “index of” admin
I’m just producing these from the top of my head, I don’t know whether they’d result in anything interesting, that’s where you come in. You got to find a search string that gets the results you want.
