On CentOS v6.3 when I type:

yum update

followed by:

yum search inconsolata-fonts

or:

yum search inconsolata

I get no results.

However a Google search indicates that a package called inconsolata-fonts is available.

How can I make yum find this without manually downloading the rpm using a browser?

According to the page you linked to, these packages are in the DAG packages for Red Hat Linux repository. You can add these to your system through rpm-forge.

The basic steps are (taken from here):

  1. Download the rpmforge-release package. Choose one of the two links below, selecting to match your host's architecture. If you are unsure of which one to use you can check your architecture with the command uname -i

  2. Install DAG's GPG key

    rpm --import http://apt.sw.be/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
    
  3. Install the downloaded package

    rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.*.rpm
    
  4. Now install your font

    yum install inconsolata-fonts
