Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

I tried

  • (search term site:stackoverflow.com) OR (search term site:superuser.com) OR (search term site:stackexchange.com)
  • search term site:stackoverflow.com,superuser.com,stackexchange.com
  • search term site:stackoverflow.com site:superuser.com site:stackexchange.com

None of them works. What is the correct way to search?

After a bit of experimenting, it appears you can do this by putting the OR operator between the sites:

search site:stackoverflow.com OR site:superuser.com OR site:stackexchange.com

This gives you results from any of the sites.

If you do this kind of search frequently on the same set of sites, you can create a Google Custom Search. You add the sites you want to search to it and it gives you a url to go to when you want to do a search. All searches from this url only contain results from the configured sites.
