Geek Tip: Search a Website With Google

How crappy is it when you know you saw something on a certain website, so you search it, just to find that their native search engine sucks?! You KNOW Google would find it. Of course, you can Google the site's name and the keyword, but you'll get results from different websites as well. Say you were Googling "geeksugar" plus "clocky" to find what geek has said about Clocky. It's not that efficient, because other sites may have mentioned both of those words, and your results can be all over the place.
BUT! If you add the magic command "site:url" to the keyword in your Google search, problems are solved. For instance, you'd enter "Clocky site:www.geeksugar.com," and bam, all your results are from geeksugar, and geeksugar only.

It's kind of wrong how much I love Google!
