How to search Google with SEO commands
We will assume that you already know a thing or too about Goole search commands, so at this time we’re just going to give you the list for you to go try and experiment.
site:seo.mom – for an indexation search
keyword source:Google news site
e.g. search for macbook in Financial times
Intext and Allintext allow you to search longer search phrases e.g.
allintext: how do I get voice search traffic
seo mom knows its good to track down different online documents like PDFs so for this purpose use filetype+file
e.g. seo filetype: pdf to search for PDFs that have some topical value towards the keyword seo.
Intitle+ Keyword and Allintitle+Keyword are good ways to hunt for outreach keyword based opportunities.
e.g. intitle: seo blog
Inurl+keyword and allinurl+keyword for finding domains that exact match or hold commericial or overlapping SEO keywords to your interests.
Related+ domain allows you to search for related domains and uncover seo competitors.
e.g. related:diy.com – very helpful when you want to see which sites a search engine think are related, rather than what you would expect.
seo mom assumes that you know the basics already like +, AND, ” ” and -keyword, so we will not cover these off in this blog post but its worth getting to know Google search commands, for some its an easy way to move away from software to assist with webmaster responsibilities
“site:yourdomain.com – inurl:https”
imagine putting that command into a tool to search a list of domains where you could find insecure pages. SEO can be easy to deliver, to win clients if you think imaginatively and think out of the box.
seo mom evens uses the search bar as a calculator, do you? Use the * and + or – to make calculations in your browser.
