I got your back.

- Go to google.com
- Right click in the search box and click "Add a Keyword for this search"
- Enter the name of "Search XDTalk"
- Enter the keyword of "xdtalk"
- Click "Add"

Now, go find the item you just created, which should be somewhere in your bookmarks.

- Right-click your "Search XDTalk" item and select "Properties"
- Remove the text that is in the location box and enter this...

PHP Code:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=site:xdtalk.com%20%s&aq=f&oq= 
Now all you have to do to search XDTalk is enter "xdtalk ___________" in your address bar where __________ is your search terms.

Works great!

EDIT: I used the "PHP Code" object above so that it wouldn't convert some of that text to smiley faces.

You use Google, even from a browser, you get tracked. And Yahoo and innumerable other websites. Get over it, I'm sure big brother has little interest in knowing where you go on the net unless you are searching with 'suspicious' terms.

If you're using the internet you're being tracked! The only way to avoid it is to not be online in the first place.

Oh, useful info. Bump until it becomes a sticky!

We are trusting the future, or at least the next four years to a cult figure who brings with him a questionable background, no executive experience and very liberal congress controlled in both houses by people of questionable motives, morals and ethics. GOD, help us!

You are very welcome. Just trying to lend a helping hand to fellow XDer's.

If you like this thread, why not show me some love and give me some rep points. Just click on the scales in the panel on the left. Thanks!
