Here is a simple technique to respect client terms consistency thanks to the client's website. I will test it.

"
I need to see within the Italian portion of my customer whether in the past they have used more often "implementazione dell'applicazione" or "deployment dell'applicazione".

If my customer's Italian web site is, for example http://www.xyz.com/IT, I just need to enter in the google search box

"deployment dell'applicazione" site:http://www.xyz.com/IT

and then repeat the operation for

"implementazione dell'applicazione" site:http://www.xyz.com/IT

Both searches will be limited to the customer's Italian web site, and the google search results could give me a good idea of the relative frequency of the terms used.

Note that this can also be used with top-level domains, i.e. .com or .it etc. Very handy for quickly restricting your search to hits from a given country/language. It's an approximate restriction (.es searches exclude Latin American hits, as well as Spanish pages on .com sites etc.), but it's nice and convenient.

Let's take my website for example: http://avicoco.yolasite.com/

I find at least one result, if I google for : "bank" site:http://avicoco.yolasite.com/

I don't find any result, if I ask for: "chocolate" site:http://avicoco.yolasite.com/

And yet I'm just a subdomain, not a top-level domain. Or am I?

Could you give me one full example of a top-level address and one of a non top-level address?

Thanks,

Avinash.

In your example: http://avicoco.yolasite.com/

The top-level domain is .com
The second-level domain is yolasite.com
The third-level domain is avicoco.yolasite.com

By the way, you don't need to include the "http://", but including the "." is sometimes necessary. So instead of searching for this:

"bank" site:http://avicoco.yolasite.com/

...you can also search for this:

"bank" site:avicoco.yolasite.com/

Or, to search in all third-level subdomains in yolasite.com, you can search for this:

"bank" site:.yolasite.com/

old deleted pages as search results Apr 10, 2011

Thank you

I also noticed that some search results are old pages that do not exist anymore, from the same website. I wanted a separate page for each of my activities: writing, translation and IT tips.

The writing and IT tips sections are no more, but google still finds them, pointing to http 404 errors.

If the same happens for the client, this could be dangerous:

If the same happens for the client, this could be dangerous:
If we imagine the situation, the client deleted the pages specifically to get rid of some formulations, and hired the translator to get new translations... and the translator finds them again on google, but does not click on the link to get the 404 error and produces the same terms as the deleted pages

So I would at least click on the link to see if the page still exists during translation.

Searching proz Apr 11, 2011

This method is useful to google Proz too.

example: "opérateur" site:proz.com

gives all kudoz answers with that word (9150 results, I guess it's for all languages). It's a way of using Proz as terminology quickly without using Proz search engine.

Kudoz Apr 11, 2011

Yes! I use this method for searching Kudoz - it's faster and you can find terms buried deep in the discussion.

searching for kudoz questions using Google Apr 11, 2011

I usually just enter the term in question followed by +kudoz
You can't get much faster than that!
