Hello,
what is the best google querry to launch to find all sites where the domain name contains, for example, "dog"?

Thanks in advance,
Brakkar

allinurl: dog

Just keep two things in mind:

1) It will only return results for which "dog" is easily discernable. dog.com, dog-helper.org, dog.canines.org, etc., will be returned. Something like bulldog.com will not.

2) It will return results where "dog" appears anywhere in the path, such as widgets.com/canines/dog.htm

Thanks for your answer.
And how to return the urls with bulldogs.com or dogsbull.com?

I tried with allinurl: *dog* but it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks
Brakkar

As far as I know it isn't possible.

You'd be trying to search for just part of a word and I don't know any SE that supports this.

Google doesn't support a stemming wildcard, but AltaVista does to an extent.

You can go to AV and search for url:dog* and you will get urls containing strings starting with "dog." However, you can't search for strings that contain "dog" any-ol'-where -- url:*dog gets you only those URLs which have "dog" as an independent string.

url:dog* gets you over 900,000 results. Since you're looking for domains only, you probably want to use this search: url:www.dog* which will give you 90,000 results or so. To narrow it down even further, include the keyword dogs:

dogs url:www.dog*

which will narrow your results even further.

Another option is to search the Yahoo Directory (http://directory.yahoo.com , NOT www.yahoo.com ) using its url syntax: u:dog . However this will give you a very limited number of results.

Some of the whois service sites have wildcard matching in domain searches....

You can also do a whois lookup at whois.net, use the "Search by domain or keyword" option.
