While I'm aware that an allindomain operator doesn't exist, I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to achieve this with allinurl or similar in Google Search.

allinurl: returns results containing the specified keyword anywhere within the URL (directories, sub-directors, domain name, etc.).

I'm trying to limit results to those containing the keyword either in a subdomain (http://keyword.example.com) or just the domain itself (http://examplekeyword.com)

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

If I understand your question correctly, this can be achieved using quotes and wildcards. So something along the lines of searching "http://*keyword*.*" for a domain or "http://*keyword*.example.com" for a sub-domain of example.com.

You could simply use "http://*keyword*" to get as comprehensive results as possible.

(For completeness' sake, you must include the quotation marks, they limit it to "exactly this phase" while the asterisks can represent a character or number of characters.)

Hope that helps.

Use the site: parameter in the Google Search to your advantage in this case.

Lets say you want to find the word "Magic" in any website within the stackexchange.com domain, simply type in "Magic site:stackexchange.com" and it would bring up search results that is isolated to the domains and subdomains of stackexchange.com.

Hope this helps!
