Limiting Your Search By IP Address with MSN Search and Gigablast

Barry reports that MSN Search allows searchers an option to limit their search to a specific IP address. Example here. Actually, a bit of research points out that this IP search option went live around midyear 2005. Nevertheless, it’s good that SER reminds of us of it.

MSN Search isn’t the only web engine to offer an IP search option. Gigablast also offers this feature. It’s documented here with an example.

Web search historians remember that AllTheWeb used to offer an IP search limit. It disappeared in 2004 when ATW moved to the Yahoo search platform.
