Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

How can I limit a Google search to two sites at once?

I can search Serverfault by doing site:serverfault.com windows xp, but I can't seem to figure out how to include another site in my search.

Thanks!

It appears to work by doing this:

vbscript site:serverfault.com OR site:stackoverflow.com

Of course, this could be a false positive and would require further testing

Edit: It definitely works, as demonstrated in the Results Summary:

Results 1 - 10 of about 9,080 from serverfault.com OR stackoverflow.com for vbscript. (0.06 seconds)

Further confirmation: google.com/… - the first two results are one from each of the sites. By using a less common search term, you don't need to page through so many entries to find the confirmation (or rely only on the summary). –  Dennis Williamson Jul 4 '09 at 0:59
    
+1 It seems to work. –  msanford Jul 4 '09 at 1:00
    
@Dennis - in my example, the 5th result is from serverfault.com... –  Izzy Jul 4 '09 at 4:06
