How to Search for MP3 on Google

The reason why Google being one of the best search engine today is because of their smart robot that is programmed to crawl and index tons of pages together with their excellent algorithm in returning relevant search results to searchers. Googlebot is well known for indexing whatever it finds unless it is specifically blocked using robots.txt or the meta noindex tag on the webpage. Even though only shows a box where you can type the keywords that you want to search and Google will try its best to determine what are you looking for, you can actually use search operator commands to have more control over the results that will be displayed on your browser.

The search commands are definitely useful especially if you’re trying to check the linkbacks to your website, to have an idea if Google has completely removed a website from their search engine probably due to violation of their guidelines and etc. It can get a little dangerous because a specially crafted search command would reveal a list of websites with live streaming webcam, serial numbers or even password files.

If you’re not a fan of using third party services of software and would prefer to do it yourself, here is the simple command to search MP3 in Google.
