Refine Google to Search File Types (Level: Pretty Easy)

Copy {-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(doc|pdf|txt) ” Search terms”} into the search bar and replace Search terms with a document title to find open indexes that contain downloadable text files. You can change the files being searched from (doc|pdf|txt) to (mp3|wma|wav) to find audio files or indeed to include any other file extension you may need.

If all this copying and pasting is too much, you can also visit G2P (Google to Person) under http://www.g2p.org, which offers an input-field interface to Google searches like the example given above to help locate open directories or otherwise shared files.

Cheers,

Technofriends Team.
