Posted elsewhere, but nobody responded...

We all know what is produced by Site:, Link: and most of the rest and they have fairly clear definitions and understandable results (although somewhat crippled!).

But in studying the following search (call it a domain name search), I have found some interesting things and would like to learn more about it's "definition" and "real meaning".

The domain search is simply searching google for this: [url]www.yourdomain.com[/url]

Besides the following important information, what else can this search tell us?

1) If you search for [url]www.a-banned-domain.ext[/url], Google will show you nothing and I believe that is confirmation the site is banned in Google. (Don't bring up the site: command, because it lags behind after Google has banned a domain while all the pages of the banned domain are removed from the databases).

2) If you search for [url]www.somedomain[/url].org and Google rreturns results for [url]www.somedomain[/url].com, it tells you that some redirects for the .org that "[U]were in place[/U]" no longer are! Used/expiring domain buyers better learn how to read this one. Why? The inbound links man -- they are likely VERY wrong.

3) It also appears that even though there are scads of Google servers and databases, this domain search delivers some of the absolute most up-to-date results -- first place you will find you are banned. My research tells me that the results of this command are so current that it may get special treatment...

So what else can this simple command (domain name search) tell us?

And you are welcome to tell me if you "think" I am wrong with my #1-#3 observations.

1. sounds reasonable.

2. are you saying the search gives false results - or that is has discovered errors?

3. I've never been banned, so I really don't know - but I see no reason why this is 'special' - if the site has gone, then it's gone. That's what being banned is all about. It's what you'd get with any 'standard' google search. You are comparing it with searches we know to be faulty, rather than comparing with another 'normal' search. Try searching fro some 'unique text' from a banned site; that'll be gone too.

If you search for matt cutts url, you will see nothing there but it has not been banned so I'm not so sure #1 is right.

That's interesting!

A search for mattcutts.com and www.mattcutts.com show zero

While "mattcutts.com" and "www.mattcutts.com" both show the site.

Try "" with a banned site, and see if that finds it ...
