There are a lot of good websites do not offer an internal search option. And then there are those which offer a crappy internal search feature. If you want to find the selective content from your favourite website, here is the best way to do it.

There is a simple way to search any website, using any of the following search engines—Bing, DuckDuckGo, Google, or even Yahoo (which still exists.) It also works in every browser.

Head over to your favourite search engine(apparently Google), or the search bar in your current browser, now type what you want to find, just like you would normally do. But here is the trick: after or before your query, type site: followed by the name of the site you want to search internally. So, if you wanted to search for Wireshark articles at latesthackingnews.com, you should search for:

wireshark site:latesthackingnews.com

wireshark latesthackingnews

As you can see above, there is a variety of quality articles about everyone’s favourite operating system. And this also works in every search engine:

It is really this simple! You just need to remember the site: followed by the domain name of the website you wish to search. It is one of those Google power user tricks which make exploring the internet a lot easier, so just keep it in mind.

Oh, and if you have set up search keywords in your browser, know that you can use this trick to set up search keywords for any site, even if they don’t offer a search function. Just search for something, then copy the URL for use when you create your keyword.
