How to Use Google to Search With in a Single Web Site?

Ever want to use Google to search a single Web site?

You can use Google's site: syntax to restrict your search to a single Web site. Make sure there's no space between site: and your Web site. Follow with a space and then your search terms. You don't need to use the "http://" portion of your URL.

You could also widen the search to include all the About.com Guide sites:

site:about.com google

This same search can be widened to include all the Web sites within a domain.

Google's site: syntax can be mixed with other syntax, such as AND and OR searches.
