Using the site: operator without getting supplemental results [site:www.example.com www.example.com] ScottD msg:3081272 10:20 am on Sep 13, 2006 (gmt 0) Searching with the site:www.example.com tool has been giving me strange results, but when I used the search:
The results came out good. No supplementals, the home page is listed first, the number of pages looks sensible etc.
I'm not sure if this is well known, but as someone who has had all sorts of weird things going on with the results from the site tool, it was good to see.

I just had a chance to check this one out, and it's very interesting. Your approach does seem to apply some sort of digital tranquilizer to the site: operator's results. That's worthy of some further study I'd say -- thanks! I've been using it without the "www", by the way, just to catch any canonical issues. steveb msg:3086201 6:17 am on Sep 17, 2006 (gmt 0)
First site I checked had supplementals at the end and its homepage first ("normally" it is fifth). lmo4103 msg:3086372 1:00 pm on Sep 17, 2006 (gmt 0)
Did it show approximately all non-supplementals with a few supplementals at the end?
inurl:www.example.com does a very similar thing although you may have to
repeat the search with omitted results included.
Either way, I saw
Results 1 - 92 of about 95 and only the last 3 were supplementals.
Maybe this is the flip side of site:www.example.com ***
I am hoping that this number will rise when google dances.

Well maybe the math route?
do -- http://www.example.com
and then -- http://www.example.com *** (sup results)
Subraction will get U there.....
best I can think of
