Using Special Syntax

Google is a full-text search engine. It indexes entire web pages rather than just titles and descri­­pt­ions. Special syntax operators allow you to specify that your query words must appear in specific parts of the web page in order to return the page as a search result.

Special Syntax Operators

Web Page Title
intitle: | allint­itle:
Web Page Body Text
intext: | allintext:
Web Page Link Anchors
Specific Web Site or Domain
