    Software to Search within Website


    Is there a program for Windows that can search with keywords within a website?

    Zilla,

    Sorry I am not exactly sure what are you looking for here. If you are looking at just finding keywords on a web page then most browsers will have a find function in built for example CTRL + F.

    If this not what you are looking for please can you provide a little more information on what you are trying to achieve.

    Thank you,

    Harry

    A program that can crawl a website & search with a user provided keyword. I found a program "A1 Website Analyzer". Any similar programs? Thanks!

    Most search boxes in the web sites themselves just use a search engine like Google and tack on the "site:" param. Like to search LoveHKFilm.com you would type this is google
    keyword site:lovehkfilm.com. A concrete example:
    Shu Qi site:lovehkfilm.com

    Most engines support that syntax. DuckDuckGo will work with the same search line.

    I am aware of all this. There are many websites that do not have inbuilt search functionality & search engines like Google do not show any result with the syntax: keyword site:www.site.com

    I am looking for alternate software programs that can crawl websites & search. Thanks!

    Can you give an example? This search string finds this thread for example when put into Google.

    Example: I am trying to search for all the posts with the name "David" on the website: vnltue.blogspot.in using the following Google syntax: David site:vnltue.blogspot.in but do not get any results. This is an open site (no need to login).

    There are actually many posts on the website with the title that includes "David". For example: vnltue.blogspot.in/2011/04/new-agenative-american-flute-david.html

    Looks like they have disabled google indexing. Look at http://vnltue.blogspot.in/robots.txt

    I don't know how to answer your question though I'm afraid, sorry.
