While searching for information on the NYS Department of Health site (I don’t mean to pick on them, but this is a true example), I couldn’t seem to find what I needed after about 10 minutes of searching. So, I went to Google and typed the following:
health.state.ny.us:spanish language materials
The “health.state.ny.us” portion is the address of the website I was searching. The colon in the middle (without spaces on either side) tells Google where the site name ends and the actual keywords begin. This simple tweak in my search magically brought up a manageable list of relevant results!
I hope this helps next time you stumble across an unwieldy website that you know has information you need. Until next time…
