I want to search on Google for some terms but the requirements are that the website's domain name must be .edu. How do I set up my search to filter out all those websites and domains that do not end in .edu?

The site: operator allows you to restrict results to a domain. It may be applied to a top-level domain (ex. .com, .org), second-level domain (ex. google.com), or any higher-level domain (ex. gaming.stackexchange.com). There must not be a space between the colon in site: and the start of the domain.

To limit search results to the .edu top-level domain, add the site:.edu term to the query.

For more information about the site: and other advanced operators, see http://support.google.com/websearch/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=136861.

  • Thanks. Interesting to note that space before.edu matters.
