I want to use Google (or any other good option) to search for a specific image inside a specific site.

  1. I go to http://images.google.com/
  2. Click on that small camera icon
  3. Paste the image URL
  4. Now I see a list of sites where Google found that image in.
    (click here to see my results page)

Now here's my problem: I want Google to limit this search to a specific site (say "cnn.com" for example).
I tried using "insite:cnn.com" operator, but that doesn't seem to work when searching by image.

The operator is actually site:. You can add it to the search line after uploading your image.

That is the correct operator, but from my testing it seems to be ignored by Google when using reverse image search. – Steven Penny Dec 5 '13 at 23:24
