Google commands:

Everyone nows that google is great for searching for images and webpages, even hackers say it is good. But not many people know why hackers are intrested in using google. Well here is why.

On this page you will find some secret commands that people are not told about google.

To look for certain files like .com or .gov type: site:gov or site:com or try this “board”

To look for html names or a word in a tilte of a site type: intitle:wordhere

these may or may not be known to most people who read this but it doesnt matter learn them and combine them.

You may want to try this filetype:xls "restricted"

or this one: site:mil filetype:xls "password"

or maybe site:mil “index of” admin.

This information is for educational purposes and should not be tested out you will be held responsible for your actions. I do not take any responsability for anyoine testing out anything on this page.

more later....
