Search operators are special commands that can narrow the focus of your search queries. They can be used to search for keywords found specifically within a URL or a title tag, as opposed to only within the text of a page. They can also be used to search for keywords found only on domains with a specific extensions, such as .com's or .net's. Advanced search operators can also be used to look for a specific kind of site that displays a specific keyword phrase and contains additional text that you might find useful, such as blogs that target "amateur porn" with "post a comment" publically displayed.

Advanced search operators can be used along with footprints to further target your search efforts. By using a combination of search operators, keywords and footprints you can essentially find any number of potential link sources you might need. For example, you can use a combination of search operators, keywords and footprints to find websites, blogs or social bookmarks targeted to "amateur porn" that contain any number of words useful for link building such as "register.php", "comment", "add url" and "submit".

To use advanced search operators, it's best to use software designed for them like Scrapebox or GSA Search Engine Ranker. Both of these tools have fields for you to enter in any number of search operators, keywords and footprints. Once entered, all you need to do is run the software and they will go out and crawl all of the major search engines for any and all sites that match your queries. This is the fastest and most efficient way to develop your own database of potential link sources.

Here is a list of some common search operators


To search for URLs with a specific TLD

To search for URLs with a specific keyword in the title, in the text or in the actual URL


Alternatively, you can search using

allintitle:keyword phrase
allintext:keyword phrase
allinurl:keyword phrase

To search for URLs with a specific keyword in the title and a specific word/page in the URL

intitle:keyword inurl:register.php

To search for pages on a specific domain contact webmasters trade

To omit specific URLs from being returned during a query

To search for URLs related to a specific domain

To search for URLs that display a list of niche sites

intitle:sites "keyword phrase" 

To find specific niche forums on a .com TLD inurl:forum "keyword"

There are many more search operators as well as footprints that you can use to harvest targeted URLs, but these are the ones that I've found to the most useful for adult.
