Quick Tips

Tip from David Crandall, originally posted at Dynamite Circle, our private community for entrepreneurs..

Remember when Dan & Ian made their list of things they’d “never” do? One of their “never do this” was searching competitors’ sites for any files they have laying around their domain. Customer lists, project plans, ebooks they are charging for elsewhere…that kind of thing.

 

Since they would never do that, they would also never want to use this bookmarklet either. Clicking on it while on a site opens a new tab and Googles the entire domain (regardless of how deep you were into the site) for any of the following file types:

  • PDF
  • DOC
  • TXT
  • XLS
  • MP3
  • ZIP

I would also “never” do this and would never have a few HUNDRED megabytes of files from doing this. Nope, no sir. Never.

 

Which means I didn’t rush right out and create this bookmarklet code or that I now use it multiple times a day every single day whenever I visit a new site (make sure to remove any line breaks that the forum might add):

javascript:var domain=location.href.replace(/^.+:///,”);domain=domain.replace(//.*$/,”);domain=domain.replace(/^.*.(?=.+.)/,”);window.open(‘http://www.google.com/search?q=site:’+domain+’+filetype:pdf OR filetype:doc OR filetype:txt OR filetype:xls OR filetype:mp3 OR filetype:zip’);

 

INSTRUCTIONS: I wish I could figure out how to just make this a draggable link, but alas…I could not; javascript does not like to play nice with HTML in forums. To use this code, right-click on your bookmark bar and select “Add page”. Give it a title (mine is called File Search) and paste all of the the above code in italics in the URL section. Then visit a site and give it a try…or rather don’t. Nope, you shouldn’t do that at all.

    Dudes, this is rad awesome. Dan, I think I recently shared with you about Trip Lanier’s http://www.thenewmanpodcast.com/ and the http://pickuppodcast.com/ — totally agree that although that community gets a bit of a bad rap sometimes, learning more about social dynamics and “inner game” along these lines will help you just the same in business or in relationships. Also, thanks for sharing that sneaky script from David! :)

    In some ways these guys have had more incentive and more field testing– i’ve found in general that the psychological insights coming from these guys are better than the stuff i find in the business section of the bookstore. never saw the new man show i’ll check out a few episodes, thanks for taking the time to post the link cody…

    it funny im useing facebook like that as a cold call, i’ve read both the game and the art of seduction. Funny thing is confidants plays a lot into this for instance walk into a room with a bathrobe on.

    if done right people will simile of course but if you can make them feel comfortable while being confidant. Tim ferriss also commented on that he said that he went to the blog convention “I talked about them what they did i never brought up what i wanted.”

    Then they asked what he did when he said im writing a book they where hooked, im sure most of the readers have read that already.

    there more but that a lot lol

    just don’t tell them you are a blogger! 

  • http://www.bzemic.com/impossibleInstinct/ steve ward

    true…..lets see writer, business builder, dating guru? (i dont like guru anything) on and on

    speaking of cold calling it drives me nuts how much bad cold callers that are out there:

    mistake number one: not knowing who i am, come on really you cold call someone and you dont even know if it a man or a woman?

    mistake number two: again this goes back to not knowing who i am, 90% of cold calls do not know i have a facebook page. Really you could find out a lot about me that way save you some trouble and makes you sound less like a robot.

    example: hello x, i see that you have a facebook page and that you love X i think you might like Y but nah nm (wait a few seconds) this gives them time to say no but they will say yes because you are teasing them in most cases.

    Mistake number three: no when to just shut the hell up, i dont know how many times i’ve been cold called to and they spent 5mins telling me something. (i just zone out) then i say no.

    on a side note lately it seems i get the mobbsters who almost threaten me into a sell but i just hang up

    I can’t get that file search script to work. I’ve tried it in IE, Firefox and Chrome but nothing happens when I click the bookmark. I added the code as the location or URL and named the bookmark “file search” … what am I missing?

  • http://www.tropicalmba.com Dan

    Asked the DC himself about that. Can’t provide tech support myself sorry (you don’t want me doing that!), I’ll see if these guys get back to me.

    Brad, 

    Sorry you’re having trouble. :(  Wanted to make sure we are starting at the same point though. Here are my assumptions: 
    - You copied all 5 lines of code.
    - You removed all linebreaks that might have occurred.
    - You pasted it into the URL section when creating a new bookmark.
    - Your browser has javascript enabled.
    - You clicked on the bookmark while on a website (as opposed to a blank tab)

    Let me know if those assumptions are correct. I figure they are, but want to make sure. We can start there and then can work through it. :)

    The DC

  • http://bradonomics.com Brad West

    All those assumptions are correct except the five lines of code. In my browser I only see 4 lines, but of course it becomes one line when I remove the breaks totaling 288 characters including the spaces.So in the “URL” section of the bookmark whre it would usally read “http://www.heroicdestiny.com/” it has:javascript:var domain=location.href.replace(/^.+:///,”);domain=domain.replace(//.*$/,”);domain=domain.replace(/^.*.(?=.+.)/,”);window.open(‘http://www.google.com/search?q=site:’+domain+’+filetype:pdf OR filetype:doc OR filetype:txt OR filetype:xls OR filetype:mp3 OR filetype:zip’);

    You are having trouble because the blog converted all the quotation marks into the curved ones when you have to use the straight ones in javascript. Sounds silly but it’s true.  I posted the code on my website so that you can easily copy and paste: http://hallidaywebsites.com/site-search/ Link won’t work forever so copy paste while you can.

    That did it. Thanks so much.

    I feel like a 1337 h4x0r with that tip. I’ve been snooping around some sites and found enough meat and potatoes to feed an army for months. Thanks for tweeting this today Dan
