    Best Google Searching Tips

    This How-To will teach you how to use google to find mp3s. This How-To
    will be highly pragmatic and will focus on the hows and not the
    wherefores of the various search strings.

    Index
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    0) Key
    1) Directories
    2) Xitami Servers
    3) Directory Listing
    4) Andromeda Servers
    5) Zina Artists
    6) Apache mp3 Servers
    7) Individual Songs


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Section 0 - KEY
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    You this are just some definitions I will use below.

    [Directory String] can be any of the following :
    1) "index of"
    2) "last modified"
    3) "parent of"

    [file type] can be any of the following :
    1) "mp3"
    2) "shn"
    3) "wma"

    [mp3 name] can be any of the following :
    1) the name of the album in quotes
    2) the name of the artist in quotes
    3) be daring and leave it blank and have lots of links
    4) be creative!

    [limitors]
    1) -html -htm -php -asp -txt -pls

    (inurl is optional and may be omitted and in fact most be
    omitted if not using a search tool other than google.

    (intitle can be used in place of (inurl and has a similar effect
    again you must be useing google.

    (-filetype:txt) adding this to the end of your search string can
    filter some false positives.

    (-playlist) adding this to the end of your search string can
    filter some false positives.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Section 1 - Directories
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    These are the most common way that mp3s are stored on the www, you
    should try these strings first.

    String Format :
    Type 1 : [Directory String] + (inurl[file type] + [mp3 name]
    Type 2 : [Directory String] + (intitle[file type] + [mp3 name]

    Type 3 : [Directory String] + [file type] + [mp3 name] + [limitors]

    Example Strings :
    - intitle:index.of + mp3 + "grandaddy" -html -htm -php -asp -txt -pls
    - "index of" + "mp3" + "radiohead" -html -htm -php
    - "index of" + mp3 + "grandaddy"
    - "index of" + inurl:mp3 + "beatles" -txt -pls
    - "index of" + intitle:mp3 + beatles
    - "last modified" + "shn" + "dylan"
    - "last modified" + inurl:shn + "bob dylan"
    - "parent of" + inurl:wma + "grandaddy"

    Suggestions :
    - Try (intitle:index.of + "mp3" + "band name" -htm -html -php -asp) first it
    is usually the most effective.

    Another Little Trick:
    - If you have been getting alot of results on google but the pages don't seem
    to be there try adding dates and the "apache" string to your search i.e.

    - intitle:index.of + mp3 + "grandaddy" -html -htm -php -asp apache feb-2005
    - intitle:index.of + mp3 + "grandaddy" -html -htm -php -asp apache 2005

    or if you just want a big list of mp3' doing a search like this everymonth
    - intitle:index.of + mp3 + -html -htm -php -asp apache mar

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Section 2 - Xitami Servers
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    String Format :
    Type 1 : "xitami web server" + (inurl[file type] + [mp3 name]
    Type 2 : "xitami web server" + (intitle[file type] + [mp3 name]

    Example Strings :
    - "xitami web server" + "mp3" + "radiohead"
    - "xitami web server" + intitle:shn + "beatles"
    - "xitami web server" + inurl:mp3 + "magnetic fields"

    ##########################################

    2nd Method:

    Here is a second example of maximizing search results on Google:

    1. At Google Search, type in one of the following two phrases (try the first one; if you're not happy with the results, try the second one on your second search):

    * "index of/mp3" -playlist -html -lyrics
    * "index of/" mp3 -playlist -html -lyrics

    2. If you'd like, add an artist's name or song name to the end of the phrase, then click the Search Button.
    3. Here are a few examples:

    * "index of/mp3" -playlist -html -lyrics beatles
    * "index of/mp3" -playlist -html -lyrics punk

    This tip helps you find directories filled with mp3 files by finding Apache's Index page:

    1. At Google Search type in the following code:
    2. +("index of") +("/mp3"|"/mp3s"|"/music") +(mp3|zip|rar) +apache
    3. By editing this code, you can search for any type of media; oog, wav, pdf, etc.
    4. Be sure to edit both the directory names as well as the file extensions if edited.

    Finding mp3 and compressed files searching by title:

    1. At Google Search type in the following code:
    2. allinurl: +(mp3|rar|zip|tgz) TheTitle
    3. Replace TheTitle with either a song title, artist name, or album.
    4. Here are a few examples:
    * allinurl: +(mp3|rar|zip|tgz) beatles
    * allinurl: +(mp3|rar|zip|tgz) revolver
    * allinurl: +(mp3|rar|zip|tgz) greatest hits
    --------------------
    & to find cell phone programs:

    just type the following line in your google search box and see experience a new world of finding games

    for games
    "parent directory" nokia games -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums

    for tones
    "parent directory " nokia polyphonic -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums

    for symbian games
    "parent directory " symbian games -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums

    for Wallpapers
    "parent directory " nokia wallpapers -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums

    for general Midi
    "parent directory " midi -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums

    also try using "Index of" instead of "parent directory"
    --------------------
    and other tips:

    You've probably seen some sites that allow you to Google their site for a certain term. This is accomplished via the "site" advanced operator. The following syntax is used for the site operator:

    site:site_to_search

    For example, if we wanted to search www.techarena.in
    for the term "Nielsosky", we would use the following:

    Nielsosky site:techarena.in

    or

    example:

    site:techarena.in
    ----------------------------------------------------------

    The "inurl" advanced operator is used to search for a term within
    URL's. For example, searching for "inurl:binaryuniverse" searched
    for all sites that have the term "binaryuniverse" in their URL.
    The "intitle" is used to search for a term in the title. Thus,
    "intitle:binaryuniverse" finds all pages with "binaryuniverse"
    in their title.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Google keeps caches of pages. When the Google spider indexes a page,
    it stores a copy of it. Thus, the cache is a copy of what the page was
    like at an earlier date. To view the cache for a page, you can simply
    search for the page, and then click the "cache" link underneath.
    However, there is a quicker way, that involves only typing in
    search terms, and not clicking. Simply type "cache:techarena.in"
    to view the cache
