Easy Oracle web searching

Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

Like many Oracle professionals, I'm fed-up with web site "spammers" who destroy Google search results and make it difficult to find legitimate information on the web.  Some web page scammers go as-far as to harvest Google search results and publish them as web pages, all to drive readers to their money-making adsense campaigns.

I also want an easy way to direct my students to supplemental research on my web sites.  Asking them to write-down long URL's is not the answer.

I like to share my research and I publish Oracle tips on many web sites.  Rather than undertaking the cumbersome Google site search ( searchstring), I have added a unique string to the footer of all of my web pages, in this example "bc", short for Burleson Consulting.

This makes it easy for me to quickly locate al of my material across many web sites.  In the example below, the Google search "bc oracle bitmap" returns only the results from my web domains.

For authors, you can create a list of supplemental web links and include a special string (e.g. "zz"), making it easy for your readers to find your supplemental references without having to write-down clumsy URL's.

This technique is especially useful for doing presentations and classes.  Instead of asking students to write-down long URL's, I simply provide them with "Google tags" as a way for them to read more of my notes about a topic.  The Google tags begin with "bc", and the students love it because it takes them right to my research:

If you like Oracle tuning, you may enjoy the new book "Oracle Tuning: The Definitive Reference", over 900 pages of BC's favorite tuning tips & scripts. 

You can buy it direct from the publisher for 30%-off and get instant access to the code depot of Oracle tuning scripts.
