Hello all, ok i tried a search but couldnt find anything...

I know there is a string that you can type into google search to see how many pages of a site are indexed by google.. Anyone know it?

-asdfgh site:www.domainname.com

This should do your work.

There are several different ways to do it. One easy way is to mix inurl and site syntaxes. For example, if I wanted to find the count of pages indexed for Webmasterworld.com, I would do this:

site:webmasterworld.com inurl:webmasterworld

the syntax is:

site:[[domain.suffix]] inurl:[[domain]]

Make sense?

For large sites the pinpoint accuracy of these methods is suspect:

site:webmasterworld.com inurl:webmasterworld ...about 52,500

-asdfgh site:www.webmasterworld.com ...about 57,700
-qwertyasdfgzxcvb site:www.webmasterworld.com ...about 51,600
webmasterworld site:www.webmasterworld.com ...about 52,400

I tend to like the one that gives the biggest number.

Webmasterworld is an exception case! The negative search which i mentioned works on the assumption that the word does not appear in the page. Anyways i try to go for the smaller no.
