Searching Google for Music

First, you may try this link to search Google directly:Here is a second example of maximizing search results on Google:
  1. At Google Search, type in one of the following two phrases (try the first one; if you're not happy with the results, try the second one on your second search):
    • "index of/mp3" -playlist -html -lyrics
    • "index of/" mp3 -playlist -html -lyrics

  2. If you'd like, add an artist's name or song name to the end of the phrase, then click the Search Button.
  3. Here are a few examples:
    • "index of/mp3" -playlist -html -lyrics beatles
    • "index of/mp3" -playlist -html -lyrics punk

  1. At Google Search type in the following code:
  2. +("index of") +("/mp3"|"/mp3s"|"/music") +(mp3|zip|rar) +apache
  3. By editing this code, you can search for any type of media; oog, wav, pdf, etc.
  4. Be sure to edit both the directory names as well as the file extensions if edited.
