HowTo use Google

1. Finding free shiz

Right call me an idiot but some people seem to have no idea how Google works. Or in some cases it appears people have never even met their prospective friend!

Right so, did you know you can easily use Google to download free music? Or maybe even the latest Limewire PRO or maybe even PSP isos! Everything is out their. Simply by the way Google works you have access to everything on the internet.

Google is constantly taking snapshots of webpages on the net, even those wierd and wonderful, unseen corners of the net . . . When we search Google searches it’s database of snapshots and gives you what it deems to be the most relevant results. But they may not be what you want. Here is an example of how to find some decent free music using Google. (all URLs and web names blurred of course!)

First to what we want to find. Un-protected directories:

OK so, at the top it says “index of” which tells us that it is a websites index of whatever it may be. In this case music. Every directory has this, so remeber that for later.

It has the rearranging tags “Name; Last modified; size; description” again, in every directory. Just keep these in mind for our google search later

In the middle is everything in the directory, Nickback’s albums!!!

At the bottom is details of the server. Which, in the wrong hands, could be used to mount a malicious hack-attack. But we’re not evil so we’re not going to be doing that.


Onto Google!

So remember the tags and the “index of”? They are in every un-protected directory so we need to find them. To do this google: Quote:: intitle:“index of” +size +modified +name

(mp3|wma) to find certain media types and “nickelback” for, please don’t say I have to explain that lol.

You can use this method for just about anything you want, the possiblities are endless!


Keep this in mind and use your amazing friend Google before asking pointless questions! Or I will be forced to direct you to here!


2. Google Operators

The “intitle command” is one of Google’s built in operators, used to help refine your search. AND OR NOT are also operators, which happen to be the only ones my ICT teacher seems to know about. Instead of AND NOT you can use + -. Anywho, here is a list and explanation of Google’s operators, and I’ll give a few examples of how they are useful

Cache [cache:URL KEYWORD] Remember I said Google takes ‘snapshots’ of the web? Well it stores all of this in it’s cache. To view a webpage in Google’s cache you use this. It may be useful for finding an older version of a website before a change was made. example: “cache:www.psphacks.com Dark_aleX” will find every page in PSP-hacks that contains the words Dark_aleX, within Google’s cache.

Linking [link:URL] This is used to find links to a certain website from other websites. For example a link to PSP-hacks.com that originates outside of PSP-hacks.com. Although if you had a ‘home’ link then all those would be shown too. example: “link:www.psp-hacks.com” will find everysite with a link to psp-hacks.com.

Related [related:URL] This is used to find similar website, or ones that are related to the specified website. Although I’m not quite sure how this is achieved.When I use it for psp-hacks the first on the list is QJ! example: “related:www.psp-hacks.com” finds every site similar to psp-hacks.com, so most psp hacking sites.

Information [info:URL] Using this will spool out the information given about a website, not much to say here really. example: “info:psp-hacks.com” returns: “PSP Hacks, Cracks, Homebrew, and Modifications. All your PSP underground needs!”

Defining [define:KEYWORD] Google can be used as more than a search engine, but I’ll go into that later. Here is one of the ways it is more than a web searcher. You can use it as a dictionary. example: “define:tard” returns: Mental retardation

Sites [site:URL] I’m not sure about this one so we’ll let good old Google explain it: “If you include [site:] in your query, Google will restrict the results to those websites in the given domain.” I think it means that it will search for something limiting it’s search to a specified website. example: “site:www.psp-hacks.com” returns every site in psp-hacks.com domain.

All in titlte [allintitle:KEYWORDS] This will search for all of the specified words in the title of a website. Rather like the normal Google search but searching only titles intsead of everything. example: “allintitle:PSP-hacks.com / help” will find the PSP-hacks.com forum help section, where we are now.

In title [intitle:KEYWORD] This is not to be confused with the above operator. If you entered “intitle:PSP-hacks.com / help” then it will look for “PSP-hacks” in the title and “/ help” anywhere on the page. It is limited to single words after the colon. However you can use quotes so “intitle:“PSP-hacks.com / help”” is the same as “allintitle:PSP-hacks.com / help”. Note the sets of quotes are different. example: “intitle:psp” will find every site will psp in the title.

All in URL [allinurl:KEYWORDS] Same as allintitle but searches the url (web address) instead of the title. example: “allinurl:PSP-hacks.com help” will find every website that has PSP-hacks AND help in the URL

In URL [inurl:KEYWORD] Again same as intitle but for the URL. example: “inurl:PSP-hacks.com help” will find every site with PSP-hacks.com in the URL and help in either the URL or the webpage.

Stocks [stocks:TICKER SYMBOL] This views stock information, for all you stock brockers out there. example: “stocks:intc” will give information on Intel’s stocks. You can use multiple entries.

3. Network Cameras

Wouldn’t it be great to access cctv cameras over the internet and move them around? Well you can, with the infamous AXIS cams. They basically phail and almost everything. They set up their own server which sucks to the point that google idexes it and they don’t bother putting in any security. I’m not even sure if I’m allowed to post this on this forum so I’ll removed it if asked by a mod.

the one and only wrote:

inurl:indexFrame.shtml Axis

This basically searches for the default set-up of an AXIS camera server. The higher the camera server number the more secure it is likely to be. But still not secure enough for the clever few amoung us Another down side to that search is that some of them may not be live cameras. They could be refresh cams where they take say 10 shots a minute and then upload them. We want live cams!

inurl:indexFrame.shtml Axis

intitle:“Live View / - AXIS”

Now I’m sure you can understand that without me having to explain. You will see some of the cameras have an admin button, to which there is a work-around. But seeing as that would be illegal, and I’m a law abiding citizen, I’m not going to tell you. You just need a bit of basic cgi knowledge and you’ll soon figure it out.


4. Google Layout

Because this is so simple that even my 3 year old sister could understand I am just going to quote what Google has to say. Don’t think there is any point in explaining it further. I put this at the end because it is the most boring and obvious part of this guide. The above was to sucker you in lol. Anyways, here it is:

helpscreen_tabs.gif

A. Top links Click the link for the Google service you want to use. You can search the web, look for images, browse Google Groups (Usenet discussion archive), or use Froogle to search for products.

B. Google search button Click on this button to submit another search query. You can also submit your query by hitting the ‘Enter’ key.

C. Advanced search This links to a page on which you can do more precise searches. [ Learn more about Advanced Search ]

D. Search field To do a search on Google, just type in a few descriptive search terms, then hit “Enter” or click on the “Google Search” button.

E. Preferences This links to a page that lets you set your personal search preferences, including your language, the number of results per page, and whether you want your search results screened by our SafeSearch filter to avoid seeing adult material.

F. Statistics bar This line describes your search and indicates the total number of results, as well as how long the search took to complete.

G. Tip Information that helps you search more efficiently and effectively by pointing out Google features and tools that might improve the query you just made.

H. OneBox results Google’s search technology finds many sources of specialized information. Those that are most relevant to your search are included at the top of your search results. Typical onebox results include news, stock quotes, weather and local websites related to your search.

I. Page title The first line of any search result item is the title of the web page we found. If you see a URL instead of a title, then either the page has no title or we haven’t yet indexed that page’s full content, but its place in our index still tells us that it’s a good match for your query.

J. Text below the title This is an excerpt from the result page with your query terms are bolded. If we expanded the range of your search using stemming technology, the variations of your search terms that we searched for will also be bolded.

K. URL of result This is the web address of the returned result.

L. Size This number is the size of the text portion of the web page, and gives you some idea of how quickly it might display. You won’t see a size figure for sites that we haven’t yet indexed.

M. Cached Clicking this link will show you the contents of the web page when we last indexed it. If for some reason the site link doesn’t connect you to the current page, you might still find the information you need on the cached version.

N. Similar pages When you select the Similar Pages link for a particular result, Google automatically scouts the Web for pages that are related to this result.

O. Indented result When Google finds multiple results from the same website, the most relevant result is listed first, with other relevant pages from that site indented below it.

P. More results If we find more than two results from the same site, the remaining results can be accessed by clicking on the “More results from…” link.
