I do that too, but google alone (even with advanced options) is too broad. more
often I have read about something and want to see the official docs, not 1000
other articles about it, which is what I often end up wading through when I use
I hadn't given too much thought to exactly what should fall under the ">>
variety of other docs" - might have to come up with a list of root URL's and hit
google for each one. which it currently doesn't support. (you can limit to a
site, but not site/dir.
# Occurrences: specify where your search terms occur on the page - anywhere on
the page, in the title, or in the url.
# Domains: search only a specific website, or exclude that site from your search.
It would probably suffice to limit the search to a list of domains and the title.
