0) Key

  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 :
  4. "mp3"
  5. "shn"
  6. "wma"
    [mp3 name] can be any of the following :
  7. the name of the album in quotes
  8. the name of the artist in quotes
  9. be daring and leave it blank and have lots of links
  10. be creative!
  11. -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

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
  1. If you'd like, add an artist's name or song name to the end of the phrase, then click the Search Button.
  2. 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

How 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:

For example, if we wanted to search
for the term "Nielsosky", we would use the following:
or example:

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 "" to view the cache of a page (in this case

Google also allows you to search for pages of a certain filetype, using the syntax "filetype:TYPE". Replace 'TYPE' with the file type you want to search for. So, if you wanted to search for tutorials on SQL that are in PDF format, you would search for the following:

SQL Tutorial filetype: PDF

Not only is Google the world's best search engine, it also happens to be a mighty fine dictionary. To use it as a dictionary, just type "define:TERM", and replace TERM with the word you wish to look up. For example, if you want to look up "roflmao", type "define:roflmao", without the quotes. This will give you several different resources for definitions or roflmao. Fyi, roflmao means "rolling on the floor laughing my ass off".

And now, it's time for some fun -- Google whacking. Actually, after a couple minutes, I have found Google whacking to become extremely boring, not to mention frustrating. A google whack is a two-word query that returns one result. You may not use quotes, and both words in the query must be real words. At this point, the basics of Google have been covered, and you should be a moderately good Googler.

how to search for STUFF at google

method 1

put this string in google search:
"parent directory " /appz/ -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums
"parent directory " DVDRip -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums
"parent directory "Xvid -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums
"parent directory " Gamez -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums
"parent directory " MP3 -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums
"parent directory " Name of Singer or album -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums
Notice that i am only changing the word after the parent directory, change it to what you want and you will get a lot of stuff.

method 2

put this string in google search:
?intitle:index.of? mp3
You only need add the name of the song/artist/singer.
Example: ?intitle:index.of? mp3 jackson

method 3

put this string in google search:
inurl:microsoft filetype:Huh

method 4

put this string in google search:

method 5

put this string in google search:
"name of object"download
"name of object download"
free "name of object"download
free "name of object download"
Or just look for the filename(s). and instead of using the inurl: tag, use site: that works too.
Check a test for rapidshare and for software and various files or movies or music.

Just play with the extensions.


inurl:ebook.DDU | inurl:ebook.EEN | inurl:ebook.JGT | inurl:ebook.LiB | inurl:ebook.EAT

There's a few ways to differentiate from that to change the outcome in your favor as well. For example, you can take away the "inurl:" to get many hits on things like forum posts or BitTorrent links. (Helpful if you're looking for something rare.).
You can also add the file type you like (such as PDF, CHM, LIT, etc) to get a specialized search. Finally, don't forget to put () or else Google may get confused. When defining a OR statement, Google expects the () to surround it. For example, you could search for:

  • (ebook.DDU | ebook.EEN | ebook.JGT | ebook.LiB | ebook.EAT )
  • PDF (ebook.DDU | ebook.EEN | ebook.JGT | ebook.LiB | ebook.EAT )
    or get fancy with
  • (PDF | CHM | LIT | ZIP | RAR | ISO) (ebook.DDU | ebook.EEN | ebook.JGT | ebook.LiB | ebook.EAT)
    You can also use "Parent Directory"+ in front of it but don't limit the search to Google, try several engines.
