SEO Search Tips (using Google)
Enter just the word http for your search to find the top 1000 PageRanked sites.
Enter only www in your search to see how Google ranks the top 1,000 sites.
Manually type the following prefixes and note their utility:
- link:url Shows other pages with links to that url.
- related:url same as "what's related" on serps.
- site:domain restricts search results to the given domain.

- inurl: like allinurl, but only for the next query word.
- allintitle: shows only results with terms in title.
