Use Google to search within a specific newspaper

Many websites, even good ones, have less-than-excellent ways to search within their webpages.

Google tends to do a better job searching within websites.

To search within a particular website, type site:www.URLofwebsite.com [<--- notice no spaces there!] then a space, and then your keywords.

For example:

screenshot of search for site:www.nytimes.com transgender portrayals television

You can limit the dates by clicking on the word "tools":

Note:

  • there is no space between the colon after site and the URL,
  • but there is a space between site:www.URLof website.com and your keywords
