How to search the internet for terms with special characters
How can I search for a keyword with special characters in Google Search?

I tried to search the string " " in Google and did not give any results!! I even tried within quotes, still no use. And when I search inside StackOverflow got few results.

Any idea how to search these kind of string in Google?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Try it without the semi-colon: http://www.google.com/search?q=%26%23160. IS that what you're going for?

When you put &#160 into the search bar, the url gets encoded such that:

  • %26 = &
  • %23 = #
  • Your link gives me required search results because that string combination is unique I think. But any idea why it is not working with ";"? – Antoops Jul 18 '10 at 4:57
