Google + Firefox = Free Music Downloads

firefoxgoogle Google + Firefox = Free Music Downloads

There’s a lot you can do with Google if you can take advantage of it’s advanced search features.

Expanding on this tip which shows you how to find music in open directories, here’s a step-by-step walkthrough on how to use Firefox Smart Keyword searches to speed up the process.

All you need to do is:

googlebookmark Google + Firefox = Free Music Downloads

  1. Create a bookmark in Firefox
  2. Use the URLs in this text file as the bookmark location in your Firefox bookmarks (like in the pic above)
  3. Assign a keyword to it – eg. music
  4. Type the keyword (eg. music) followed by the search term (eg. beatles) directly into the address bar (NOT the search box). For example… type in music beatles , and Google will search open directories for Beatles music files that you can download.

You can modify the code in the text file to change file extensions, which opens a whole window for you. For example, you can even change it to PDF and DOC to look to e-books, or AVI and MPG to look for movies.

By the way, I’m assuming you already own the media you will be downloading …

Bonus Tips:

  • The feature above only works for Firefox. If you’re NOT on Firefox yet, try it now
  • If you want to create basic smart keywords to search any web page, here‘s how.
  • Here’s a useful advanced features cheat sheet from Google
  • If you don’t find the files on Google, you can try the best bittorrent search engine ever.
