Do a replace of pattern:
@("""Site"":\s*"")[^""]*("",")
with:
$1 concatenated to your replacement URL concatenated to $2

Given what you've posted, this should suit you:
Dim src As String = """Site"": ""http://www.google.com/"","
Dim rslt As String = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(src, ".*?""(http://[^""]*).*", "$1")
