I’ve come to terms with the fact that Google is a benevolent Internet overlord, quietly gathering statistics and other information about the sites we visit every day. Well, today I decided to make some of that info mining work for me for a change.
So, here’s a Google trick that will help you find information on a given webpage, like what pages link to it, similar pages or pages that have the web address listed somewhere on the site.
All you need to do is type info:(web site name) into the Google search box. Like this:
You won’t get any “results”, per-say, but you’ll have around five options to choose from that will give you extended information on the web address you entered.
It’s kind of fun, plus it’s really handy for web designers and search engine optimizers (SEO).
Give it a try today!
