widget (site:foo.com ¦ site:bar.com)
The pipe acts as OR, so what you're saying here is "Find me the keyword widget in pages from foo.com or from bar.com."
Note that you can't use this with the link: syntax, as Google's link: syntax is not mixable.
It hasn't worked for me. The following search:
nasa (site:cnn.com ¦ site:abcnews.com)
Your search - nasa (site:cnn.com ¦ site:abcnews.com) - did not match any documents.
No pages were found containing "site:abcnews.com)".
webmaster site:webmasterworld.com OR site:google.com webmaster
I thought this would'nt work because of the OR, but when i tried a search i see both domains in the results.
So, Does it work?

for ex: these 2 DON'T work,:
site:webmasterworld.com OR site:google.com webmaster (gives 0 results)
webmaster site:webmasterworld.com OR site:google.com (gives 0 results)
Google does indeed support parens
That's news to me then. Is there documentation of this somewhere? Search Engine Showdown [searchengineshowdown.com], for instance, says Google doesn't.
Upon trying a few queries, it does seem to work. The typical
at least appears to work perfectly. How long has this been around for?
(word1 ¦ word2) (word3 ¦ word4)
Perhaps a bug with the google toolbar?
first. It doesn't check for another
, and it separates strings by spaces, which is why the parentheses get moved around.
I've been using parens regularly on Google since last summer. I don't know when they started working -- I've never had problems with them. Mind you, I don't do that much nested stuff -- like (foo (otherfoo ¦ bar)) -- but generally just enough to keep my queries neat.
If I paste and then replace the char all the piped searches work for me. Without replacing none of them work.
it appears you can limit the search to 9 sites, although it bombs out with 10
a very simple technique for making some sort of meta-search
