Here’s a fast and easy tip to search and download mp3 on Google, for free.
This is achievable thanks to Google’s intitle command operator.
intitle:”index of” "song title” “artist name” mp3
Let’s have an example and assume that I’m the artist and I have a song titled “I think I can sing”. You can go to Google and do a search for
intitle:”index of” “i think I can sing” “david tan” mp3
or leave out the quotes if it’s returning you with limited results
intitle:”index of” i think I can sing david tan mp3
The same technique can be applied to any kind of filetype such as wma, wmv, rmvb, pdf, docx etc. All you need to do is just replace mp3 on the above command to the filetype you’re searching for.
How Is This Possible?
This is a bit technical but the simplest explanation is that these mp3s were uploaded into a folder (on a web server) accessible by the WWW without having a index.html or index.php in that folder. As a result, when someone visits that directory, all the directory contents will be shown. This page will always have a title starting with “index of”( and thus why we use intitle:”index of” in the command). If Google’s spider crawls and index the page with the files listed on that page, we will then be able to search for them.
