Unleash Google to find hidden files

Google is the most complex search engine available for public use but very few know how to use its full potential. 99% of the Google users use just the classic keyword search. Sometimes you need to unlock the full power Google is offering and find specific files as word, power point or excel documents, mp3, exe files, hidden movies or simple source files as cdr, psd or zip. Below is a query you can use when you’re in a desperate need for a certain file.

Let’s say you need to find out a specific doc or xls file called “prices” – here is the syntax you need to use 🙂 (type it in Google Search):
-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(doc|xls) “prices”

If you love the music and want to listen to Pavarotti before you buy the CD here is how you can find a song:
-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(wma|mp3) “pavarotti”

If you like to collect propaganda, and want to search for CIA movies, here is a suggestion:
-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(avi|mpg) “CIA”

Enjoy and remember: do no evil!
