There is an interesting post on one of the many Google Blogs on how to search specific sites for data. In researching information security topics, it is often frustrating to use the default search box on certain websites. Many websites don't have decent indexing of their data and thus don't/can't offer effective search tools. Google has a way to overcome some of these limitations...

For example:

site:www.example.com sample
Would search the site www.example.com for the term "sample". Similarly,
site:insecure.org hacker
Will search the website insecure.org for the term "hacker".

Happy searching...
