Part 4: Search Specific Domains

There are literally millions of Websites online. While it's great that there are so many resources you can access in the blink of an eye, it's also a detriment when you go searching for information.

You've experienced the search results pages that show 77,456,900 results related to your keyword.

This occurs because every site that 'simply mentions' your keyword is returned.

The following search technique is going to show you how to easily narrow that down to 10, 20, or 30 GREAT results, which is probably all you really need.

When searching for information about a specific topic, first stop and think if there are any domains/sites you're familiar with that would have information related to what you're interested in, and search that domain only.

For example, if you're looking for information related to Tiger Woods, why search the entire Web when www.golf.com probably has all the information you need?

By narrowing your search to a specific site, related to your keyword(s), you can quickly eliminate the millions of pages of clutter that a general Web search inherently brings with it.

You can still use Google to do your search (you can search for 'Tiger Woods' on www.golf.com), you just need to enter your search in the following way:

tiger woods site:golf.com

Notice the addition of: site:golf.com

This tells Google to confine your search to only pages on www.golf.com.

Here's a few more examples of searching for 'Tiger Woods' on specific domains:

  • tiger woods site:cnn.com
  • tiger woods site:golfchannel.com
  • tiger woods site:foxsports.com

Try these queries yourself to get a feel for how it works.

So what do you do when you're searching for information about a topic (such as 'cat allergies') in which you have no clue what specific domains might be related to it?

Here's what you do.

1. Go to Google and do a general search for 'cat allergies'

2. Look at the sites that appear in the top 10, note the domain names (my results turned up a site at catsunited.com).

3. Redo your search for 'cat allergies', limiting your search to one of the top 10 domains listed (such as catsunited.com): cat allergies site:catsunited.com

For me, this returned 23 pages of highly focused information related to cat allergies, as opposed to the nearly 700,000 pages that resulted from a general Web search.

For sports, pets, health-related issues, cars, food, and other topics, Search Automator has the built-in ability to search for information on specific domains as we've just discussed. This will help you quickly whittle down your search results into something a lot more useful.
