Anyone got any cool techniques or 'bright ideas' how i can use intelligent search operands for finding links... Or finding valuable information for that matter. Examples with reasons...?
Fair enough - but be careful. There's some sweet sweet gold outside the search operands, because that's where everyone looks.
Not all .gov's are on .gov's. So a search like "plumbers site:.gov" won't give you all the gov't sites on plumbers.
So I'd be tempted to do a search like "government regulators plumbers" and see what comes up, then start restricting searches to those sites.
By the same token, not all educational institutions are on .edu's. Some countries have their .edu's on ccTLD's. That makes it tricker because you can't narrow the search down. You've got to go looking for lists of colleges instead. I call these sneaky .edu's because when people check my backlinks for .edu's to rip, they don't find them. And if they restrict the check to the cctld, then the .edu's are buried there as well. They can still be sourced, but not by most of my competitors.

Wheel, I am getting some fascinating results from this technique, much higher quality than the contrived junk these days on more obvious search operands - basically the bottom line is go for obscure...? Similarly uncovering weird names only known by an expert or specialist vocabulary only known in the niche works a treat...
