Google.
That's right folks, forget about limiting your parameters.

For instance, I entered (including quotes):
http://www.themagiccafe.com "gemini twins"

I received (2) results in .25 seconds. Additionally, I could click "show omitted results", which returned (7) more in .48 seconds.

I used the same technique for "3 fly". Results = 107 in .37 seconds.

Might be useful for some of your searches.

Blindbo, you forgot to warn everyone just how addictive Google is.
Most of the photo's of my favorite Magician's I have taken off of Google and have found websites of many Magician's, past and present.

Wow,
Great post, I had great luck with doing this and extremely fast.
I'm not sure if I get everything, but it is still more than the nothing I was getting before.
Thanks for the tip.

I bet a post of this in the tech area would help a few people.

Actually, your search results will be more effective if you use the proper Google syntax. When searching this site for, say, gemini twins information, write it like this:

site:www.themagiccafe.com +"gemini twins"

The "site:" command limits the search to just the one site listed.

The + says that this phrase is required to be in the resulting pages.

The quotes are used when a phrase, as opposed to a single word, is being searched for.

You'll get more returns from a given search, and there will be nothing returned from other sites.
