Google Hacking Tricks Part-I

Google™ Hacking or whatever it is called is actually nothing but using some specific keywords 2 get a more desired results. There R lots of keywords & placing them here is not a small thing. So let's start with a few common words that might B helpful 2 U.
Type intext:your keyword. Google™ will search only text containing your keyword within D site ignoring D links, title & url.

Type intitle:my site. Google™ will search only 4 D sites containing D title my site.
U can also add variations 2 this search by typing, intitle:my intitle:site. This will search site whose title contain either my or site.
Also type allintitle:my site, this will force Google™ 2 search sites whose title contain both D words in D same order.

To find a specific file format e.g.- .doc or .pdf, type keyword filetype:doc. Google™ will find word documents with D name keyword.

If U want 2 search a single web page then type my keyword.
U can also just search D domain name by typing
site:com keyword
site:org keyword
site:net keyword
site:tv keyword

Here R a few examples of using more than one hack
-inurl(html|htm|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size
This will give U a list of unprotected directories

-inurl(html|htm|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +"Kareena Kapoor"
This will give U probably a list of Kareena Kapoor pics & stuff.

-inurl(html|htm|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(wmv|avi)
This will give U a list of wmv & avi files.

-inurl(html|htm|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(wma|mp3)
This will give a list of wma & mp3 audio files.

-inurl(html|htm|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(jpg|gif)
Jpeg & gif image file list.

Like type, -inurl(html|htm|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(wma|mp3) +"In the End", will give U a list of songs with title "In the End".

U can also do maths in Google™ (I wish I knew it when my exams were going). Just type D following in Google search & hit enter.
sine(30 degrees) - Finds D sin of 30 degrees.
2^20 - Finds 2 to D power of 20 (Don't know what that is)
sqrt(2870 - Finds D Square root of 287.
Here R D list of mathematical signs that Google™ recognizes & can B used.
+ For addition
- For subtraction
* For multiplication
/ For division
^ For exponential (x to the power of y)
% For modulo (finding the remainder after division)

U can convert one unit 2 other in Google™. Type,
5 oz in cup - Finds 5 ounces in 1 cup.
12 parsecs in feet - Finds 12 parsecs in 1 foot.
37 degrees in Fahrenheit - Converts 37 degrees to Fahrenheit.

Last but not least U can also use Google™ 2 find D meaning of a word by typing, define:word
There R more Google™ hacks but rest of them I'll post later.
