Nearly every web browser comes with a Find tool, which allows you to scan the page for matching words or phrases. You can also use Google's advanced search operators to perform a search for a word or phrase on all of the pages of a specific site. You can use this in conjunction with the Find tool to locate a word anywhere on the internet.
Method 1 of 2:
Searching on an Open Page
1Press .Ctrl+F (Windows) or ? Command+F (Mac). This will open the "Find" box in virtually any browser. This command can also be found in the Edit menu in Internet Explorer, or in the ? menu in Chrome and Firefox.
- If you're using a mobile browser, the Find command is usually in the browser's menu. It may be called "Find in Page".
- If you are using Safari for iOS, delete the address that is in the address bar and type the word you want to search for there instead. Select "On this page" from the search results that appear. X Research source

Method 2 of 2:
Searching a Site with Google
1Visit Google in your browser. You can use Google to perform searches of all of the pages on a website. This can help you find matching words on large or complex websites.
2Enter .site:siteaddress.com at the front of the search. This will tell Google to only search through pages on that site.
3Enter the word or phrase you want to search for after the site address. You can enter a single word, or you can enter phrases. To have Google look for an exact word or phrase, surround it with quotes. X Research source
- For example, to search wikiHow for any page that has the word "banana", you would type site:wikihow.com banana. To search wikiHow for any page that has the phrase "eat a banana", you would type site:wikihow.com "eat a banana".
4Open a page from the search results and use the Find command. Google will return any pages that match your search, but it won't point you to the matching text once you open the page. You'll need to use the Find tool to jump to where the word occurs on the page.
- See the previous section for information on using the Find tool.
