I need javascript code that will search all the links on the page and then search for a string value within the href.

Here is an example of the link: <a href="">


Here was my failed attempt:

            if ( document.getElementsByTagName('a').href.indexOf("UserIDExample") > -1 ) {
                        alert("not found);
