To search the concoursmustang.com site using Google
« on: September 21, 2017, 11:11:26 PM »
The search option on most sites have limitations.

I use the following Google format to find pictures within this site:
site:www.concoursmustang.com text to search                || on edit == fix url
where "text to search" is a boolean search (meaning find the word "text", "to" and "search").
If you actually put "text to search" in quotes you narrow the results to that phrase.

Further, using Google's topic bar, you can narrow your search to images by selecting the "Images" button.

Add your handy tips to this thread.

Thanks for posting.  I have found this useful for many years, not for just forums either.

I've used Google custom search but like your suggestion better! 

The actual syntax for searching this site is:

site:www.concoursmustang.com text to search

In case someone (like me)   ;)  does a cut and paste!

Thanks!!

I get into more trouble with spellcheck. I had just added "concours" to my personal dictionary.

Thanks for correcting my url goof (corrected on edit and noted in my original post).
