How to Use Smart Keywords to Search Any Website Right From the Firefox Location Bar
Posted on 18th July, 2007
Here’s another cool tip for Firefox I came across recently. If you have a favourite website where you search frequently, a feature called Smart Keywords will let you search that website right from the Location bar.
Let say you are always curious to know any blog’s Technorati ranking and you visit Technorati.com all the time to do the search. Normally, you go to Technorati.com and click in the search box and enter domain name and click Search .
Smart keyword will make these steps redundant. To create a Smart Keyword for Technorati.com, visit their page and right click on the search field.
Choose Add a Keyword for this Search… The Add Bookmark dialog will appear. Enter a name for the Bookmark, e.g. “Technorati”, and give it a keyword, e.g. “tc” and save the bookmark.
Anytime you want to search a blog Technorati ranking, just enter tc blogname.com into the Location bar and press Enter. You’ll be taken to Technorati search result right away!
Of course you can create Smart Keyword for any of your favourite sites that you search frequently, alexa.com, bittorrent site, Amazon.com, Sabahan.com and so on.
