Search Renntech.org using Google

Recommended Posts

One thing I've found invaluable is the ability to search renntech.org using google. This is either because renntech.org has a google search appliance or allows the google spiders to crawl the site. In either case, it is a very good thing for the renntech.org and the avid searcher.

Instead of finding what you're looking for using the search feature on renntech.org, I find it much easier to use google instead. For starters, there is no time limit as to how many times you can search in succession. In other words, you can search every few seconds or even as fast as you can click. The only downside to this is that it's possible the search results may not contain the very latest posts, but probably only by a short amount of time. Another benefit of this method is that it puts less load on RT.org's severs, although when it is being crawled I'm sure the load is noticeable, albeit probably not for most users.

Here's how to do a search (in fact with many interweb sites you can do the same thing).

Open google.com in your browser and type in the following just as it is typed below: Include the quotes, exactly letter for letter in the example below. Put what you want to search for between the quotes.

site:renntech.org "radio code"

Google will return click-able results for your search, which in my opinion are much more "fine tunable" or at least user friendly than rt.org's own search engine (offered by IP Board and limited by rt.org's own bandwidth/resources).

If you are a real geek and want your answers quickly, you will appreciate google's ability to use search modifiers which are explained here:
