I am trying to search japanese sites for Embryology unsuccessfully by

filetype:swf site:*.jp embryology

but it returns only a few results.

The problem is that I do not have specific url pattern in university sites.

How can you search Japanese internet pages?

  • Do you need to use filetype:swf? That will restrict the search to Shockwave Flash results. Eliminating that from the search string seems to return a lot more results.

You're searching an English term on primarily Japanese-language sites. Most *.jp sites will be written in Japanese, so you should search on Japanese terms (using Kanji/Kana, not Romaji).

Using Google translate, the Japanese word for "embryology" is "発生学".

  • The first search term is excellent! There was one very good search result. Thank you for that! Mar 23, 2014 at 18:49
