    Tech tip of the month

    Just go to Google, Yahoo or Bing and enter (without the quotes) "site:survivalmonkey.com YOUR SEARCH TERM" I used SM as an example but you can use anything. site: forces Google to search only that domain.

    Example:

    Code:
    site:survivalmonkey.com word association
    In google this looks like this:
    Google

    It returns the top searches on "word association" from survivalmonkey.

    I do this all the time, but instead of using Google I use Scroogle.

    Scroogle Scraper

    Scroogle uses the Google search engine, but when you use them you get no cookies, no search term records and access logs are deleted within 48 hours.

    I send them a small donation now and then, too. They deserve it.
