I want to search a single website for pages that do or do not have a canonical URL specified (<link rel='canonical' href='http://www.site.com/pageCannonicalUrl.htm' />). Is it possible to do this using Google?

This question came from our site for pro webmasters.

No, it's not possible to search the HTML source of any website using Google.

It doesn't have to be google, I'd settle for some other site or search engine with that ability...I suppose there might be some library that would be able to spider a site for specific meta tags... – leeand00 Jun 26 '12 at 17:23
