# host = “URL”# rhost = “reverseURL” keyword # host = “”keyword # rhost = “” Search for the keyword(s) on the website denoted by “URL”.

# keywords = (KW expression) # keywords = (Spanish & Conversation) The searcher can find only pages containing the keyword(s). By using the & operator, more than one keyword can be searched.

# link <site_url> # link “” Search the Yandex index and find links to the site name following the command. Enclose the site name in quotes to ensure an exact search.

title[] Teaching English lang = “en” title[“English Teaching Site”] The title command is useful if you want to look for a website in Yandex with the exact title specified.
#url=”host” <keywords> #url=”” lessons The benefit derived from the url command is that the searcher can isolate one website and find the desired keywords in only it.
Keyword domain=”dom” conversacion domain = “es” Search for the key word or phrase within the domain specified by “dom”. In the example, the search specifies to search for the keyword on all Spanish domains. This is useful if you want to limit your search for pages in the native set of a certain country.
date=”yyyy{*|mm{*|dd}} Russia news date=”201001*” Search only for pages dated with the specified date in year, month, and day format. The * denotes a wild card. For instance, the example command says to look for Russian news pages dated in the month of January, 2010.
