I'm searching Google and wish to limit results to ones that contain my search term in the page body but NOT the page title. Is this possible?



allintext: Google search

you can combine this with allintitle: -Google search

  • Oops, it looks like this solution doesn't exclude the search term from the page titles. Page titles still appear that contain the search string. – Keyslinger Mar 12 '12 at 17:57
  • Invariably there are going to be bodies about a subject where the title contains the same string as the body. This searches bodies only, so you won't end up with any pages that have a Title with the string and no content of the string in the body. What you want to do is find pages where a string is in the body and not mentioned in the title? I thought you just wanted to ensure the string was in the body.. – Raystafarian Mar 12 '12 at 18:00
  • I want pages where the string is in the body but not the title. Is there something like "notintitle"? – Keyslinger Mar 12 '12 at 18:03
  • allinbody: "orange" AND allintitle: -"apple" – Raystafarian Mar 12 '12 at 18:08
  • hmm, adding allintitle: -"term" to the end of my query doesn't work the way it does in yours. – Keyslinger Mar 12 '12 at 18:17

Building upon @Raystafarian's answer (which I also could not replicate), I found this solution:

body: gabe AND body: tycho AND title: -gabe AND title: -tycho

You have to specify the terms separately, but this appears to work just fine.

  • This gets me closer! Now, is there a way to limit these results to a single domain? – Keyslinger Mar 12 '12 at 19:40
  • Actually, now that I look at it, "body" and "title" are just highlighted in the search results – Keyslinger Mar 12 '12 at 20:05
  • You can limit searching to a single domain by adding site:example.com to your search string. – ale Aug 16 '12 at 17:31

Put -intitle:[Your Search Term] at the end, in the Google search box.
