Restrict Google searches to one site Internet
This hint is possibly well known, but I just came across it in a newsletter from OWC:

By adding the suffix site:www.XYZ.com to your search terms, Google knows to limit its search to that particular site. Replace www.XYZ.com with the site to which you are attempting to limit the search.

[robg adds: No, this isn't an OS X hint. Given the popularity of Google, however, I thought I'd run it. For a full page of tidbits on getting the most out of Google, read their expert search tips.]

Restrict Google searches to one site

There's actually an even niftier trick you can do. Google has a keyword 'inurl' which requires that a string be in the url, and it allows wildcards, so you can search for inurl:*.ppt if you're looking for a powerpoint presentation, or inurl:*.blah.edu if you want to search all the servers at blah university, not just www.blah.edu.

Submitted as an anonymous hint of its own, but since I'm trying to not turn this into GoogleHints.com, I'm adding it here as a comment:
Search like allergies -site:.com to exclude all commerical sites
-rob.
