Google Hacks – "inurl:" & "intext:":
Google is the most popular search engine in the solar system. So
it helps to know a bit more about using it than the average earthling.
When you go to www.google.co.za and
type in something to search for, Google searches the whole page.
However you can refine this.
inurl: will search for the following text in the URL only.
intext: will search for the following text in the body text only.
For example, say you want contacts for companies with a postal code =
2000 (Johannesburg). Use:
inurl:contact intext:2000 site:za
inurl:contact will select pages wth the word "contaxt" in the page
intext:2000 will show only pages with the number 2000 in the body
text (not just postal codes, of course! That could occur in the
phone number or elsewhere)
site:za (used earlier) will select sites that end in "za", such as
co.za or org.za
