Typically Google search (or any other search engine for that matter) is used to search the entire world wide web for required information. However, at times, you might want to search a single website to get the required information.
While a large percentage of websites include a dedicated Google search box to quickly search them, not all websites include this feature.
Take, for example, you want to quickly search the entire IntoWindows website for articles on Windows 9 operating system. Sine we don’t have a dedicated Google search button on our website, you might want to know how to search the contents of IntoWindows using Google search.
Searching a particular website without opening the website in your web browser is very much possible with the help of Google search. In other words, you can search a website right from the homepage of Google without installing any extension or using any other web service.
