Doing Searches on a Specific Website
I've found that one can do an effective website search using www.google.com/advanced_search.
However, it's important how one enters the website url. Otherwise, the search doesn't work.
Let's say you want to search www.triablogue.blogspot.com.
For a more thorough search go to http://www.google.com/advanced_search and type "triablogue.blogspot.com" in the "site or domain:" field.
Make sure to leave out "http://www." and only type "triablogue.blogspot.com".
Only using "www." doesn't work. Using "http://www." sometimes works. So, it's best to leave out "http://www." entirely.
Then just type in keywords on the subject you're interested in.Whether in the "all these words" field, or the "this exact word or phrase" field, or "any of these words" field.
