TOTW: Google ‘site’ keyword

leave a comment »

While not specifically related to the topics covered by my blog, I do find the following to be invaluable. When searching for information on a given .Net class (or whatever), sometimes the results are cluttered with irrelevant links. To reduce the clutter, I will often use the “site” keyword in my Google searches.

For example, if we search Google for DebuggerDisplayAttribute[^] then we get a little over 1000 hits. We can specify our search expression as “DebuggerDisplayAttribute site:wordpress.com” to limit the results from the wordpress.com site as shown here[^].

 Google has many[^] more search criteria that you can specify, all of which can help you find what you need. Most other search engines will have similar options, but I tend to use Google.
