How to search on Google for symbols? I'd like to find all the urls on my site that have ? in them.
Is there a way to search on Google for symbols in urls. I've tried allinurl and inurl but can't seem to get it to look for question marks.
I think Google doesn't allow certain symbols to be searched as a query.
For example & is allowed and converted to %26 and returning results
But ? without a success and ignored by Google search. Yahoo is the same
I would use a full site crawler like WinHTtrack for a small site.
It is free and allows to set scan rules for URLs what to include in searches. I am not sure but it should also allow to retrieve site index without really storing the retrieved html pages in local machine. It can be a solution for a small website both for finding broken and unwanted type links.
For huge sites like hubpages, I don't know really what to do except direct SQL db query
Muratos is right, Google doesn't allow certain characters.
But something else should be said here, why does your website have ? & etc in the URLs?
There are many ways you can set your website up to not produce these as dynamic pages. Google doesn't like to index anything that looks dynamic, so if you can avoid it, that is advised.
