Try Google specific website search by adding site: option to the search string, for example:

The Avengers site:imdb.com

That will search within the specified site. Very powerful option.

You can also search within multiple websites, to do that use the operator OR:

The Avengers site:imdb.com OR site:boxofficemojo.com


UPDATE

If you want to search many websites at the same time, you can use Google's Custom Search. Using this tool Google will create a custom search tool for you where you define which websites to search and a lot of other things using a control panel. You can use the page provided by Google or you can even embed the search tool within your own website if you wish.

Other than Google Programmable Search Engine and advanced search there are a few more alternatives that are a bit more user-friendly in my opinion.

I've built a tool, called Bardeen, that searches multiple sites in separate tabs with a shortcut. It's free and can be launched from anywhere on your computer.

In general, searching websites requires

  1. understanding website link structure
  2. adding a query to the URL
  3. launch the URL with the query in a separate tab

Here is an article on how to do this with a video: https://www.bardeen.ai/posts/how-to-search-multiple-websites-at-once

There is also this Chrome Extension that I found, but it hasn't been updated since 2015. May work for you.

Hope this helps.

  • So the process would be to grab bookmarks websites and then add those as a Google advance search query? I haven't built functionality to access bookmarks yet, so it'd not be "dynamic" when new book marks are added. Very unique use case. It can be done though. Let me look into it. Aug 5, 2021 at 8:46
