    Here is an odd way of searching hubpages that I found by accident:

    type: mark knowles

    into the google search bar and see what you get … ch+the+Web

    It works for other parameters as well - both for images and web search.

    Just swap mark knowles for your user name and see  big_smile

      You'd get better results if you just use your name

      (The z. prefix is an internal thing, and can limit the results you get.)

      You can use the site: prefix in google search to search any page listed on google, not just hub pages.
      See … ur-Website

      Mark this is cool, I get a long list of comments I made onto hubs...
      Now what I would like to know how on earth do you find these kind of things...Do you out of the blue, when you're bored say "Hmmm I wonder what happens if I type 'blahblahblah' into  Google's searchbar?"

        No. I spend all day looking for obscure information on new things to write that no one else has covered. This one I found by accident smile

        You would think I have no life.... Oh, wait a minute smile

    odd. I get nothing for you. It must depend on some strange things I know notthing about. I can't make it work for other sites either.

    I tried it with a few other user names and I got results.

    eheh over 3000 for my name without the "z" - that's why Google ranks hubpages so well : you get so many backlinks from hubpages

    Well if you want obscure try these:

    intitle:”live view” intitle:axis
    inurl:axis-cgi/mjpg (motion-JPEG)


    allintitle:”Network Camera NetworkCamera”
    intitle:axis intitle:”video server”
    intitle:liveapplet inurl:LvAppl
    intitle:”EvoCam” inurl:”webcam.html”
    intitle:”Live NetSnap Cam-Server feed”

    intitle:”Live View / - AXIS”
    intitle:”Live View / - AXIS 206M”
    intitle:”Live View / - AXIS 206W”
    intitle:”Live View / - AXIS 210?
    inurl:indexFrame.shtml Axis

    intitle:start inurl:cgistart
    intitle:”WJ-NT104 Main Page”
    intext:”MOBOTIX M1? intext:”Open Menu”
    intext:”MOBOTIX M10? intext:”Open Menu”

    intext:”MOBOTIX D10? intext:”Open Menu”
    intitle:snc-z20 inurl:home/
    intitle:snc-cs3 inurl:home/
    intitle:snc-rz30 inurl:home/

    intitle:”sony network camera snc-m1?
    intitle:”Toshiba Network Camera” user login
    intitle:”netcam live image”
    intitle:”i-Catcher Console - Web Monitor”

    Just type any of these in to google and see what happens smile

    I collected these for a post for a tech blog I used to write for. I don't write there any more.

    But if you want to talk about stumbleupon traffic - 120,000 hits in 6 weeks. lol

    I was undervalued - which is why I no longer write there. big_smile

    undervalued lol, ii like it...

    I used to use some of these links viewing network camaras all day long!! when i had nothing better to do lol and was  amazed at the places that had camaras and the obviouis feeling that many people who were working in some of the offices etc, were not really aware they were being broadcast to the world.!!

    I also loved viewing streaming cams and use the live streaming times square cam as a screen saver!! its my favorite and i think will be the nearest i ever get to being in New York. Audios graet too! … =streaming
    Right click on image and view full screen...wink they have cams all over times square..We have cams here in London of Picaddily Circus and Traflager Square but they have nothing on Times sqaure in the streaming side of things and the general ambience...

    I also love the beach cams and the cams that are stuck on the front of cars, trains etc...
