Google Search within a site

less than 1 minute read

Google lets you narrow your search down to within a specific website, or to within a specific Top Level Domain (TLD), for example .gov.

You can do this by using the site: command in your search, for example:

  • java site:sun.com - searches for “java” on sites with the domain name sun.com (this includes subdomains, like java.sun.com)
  • java site:java.sun.com - more specific; searches for “java” on sites with the domain name java.sun.com.
  • copyright site:gov - searches all US government sites (domain names ending in .gov) for the term “copyright”.
