When I'm searching for answers on Experts Exchange, I often use Google because it's built into my browser. To search only on Experts Exchange, I use the "site:" search operator, which can be cumbersome to type out each time I want to run a search. Fortunately, I have found an automated workaround that streamlines the process.
It involves setting up a simple browser shortcut (for Chrome and Firefox), that you can implement in less than a minute, allowing you to search experts-exchange.com with Google by typing "ee" (instead of a site operator) before your search query in the browser address bar. In this article, I will detail how to set up this shortcut for yourself.
The process for Chrome is to add a new search engine to the browser (video instructions here):
The process for Firefox is to add a dynamic bookmark to the browser (video instructions here):
The process for adding new Search Providers to Internet Explorer is currently broken (as of 4/14/2015). When IE is updated, I will update this article with the instructions.
Once you've completed the setup, it's very simple to search Experts Exchange now with Google. All you have to do is:
You will now only see results from https://www.experts-exchange.com/
There you have it -- searching just Experts Exchange should be a much faster process. If you have any followup questions, post them as comments below.
So if you wanted to search for "dynamic vlookup formula" you would simply enter the following into the duckduckgo.com search field:
