Google search has been a blessing for developers, ummm not only devlopers, bloggers, surfers and i guess everyone who is using the immense power of internet. They are the best in the business with their superb algorithms. Google search has some hidden easter eggs through which one can utilise the power of Google in a fun rather tricky way.
So here we go with a bunch of amazing tricks:
EBooks,EMusic,EMovies with Google:
Do you wanna download any pdf file, word document or mp3 file? Google can be the first place to look forward to, isn’t it? You must be wondering what could be the trick in that, well an enormous amount of free downloadable files can be easily accessed at Open Web Directories. Its like turning Google into Napster of 2000, isn’t it VOW !!
So here is the tricky url syntax:
-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(your choice) “name”
“your choice” can be either of the following file types:
-> wma|mp3 for Music
-> pdf|doc for Ebooks
-> mpg|wmv for Videos
and “name” can be any specific music file, movie or book, you are looking for.
-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(wma|mp3) “Shakira”
This is a Google search string for searching open web directories containing downloadable Shakira music files.
