Google tip for searching Drupal modules

In addition to restricting a google search to site:drupal.org you can further restrict it to site:drupal.org/project

Just put your keywords in the google search bar followed by site:drupal.org/project

https://www.google.com/search?q=example+site%3Adrupal.org%2Fproject

Of course, at this level of focusing you might have better results using Drupal.org's own search, where you can restrict to modules and major-version compatibility:

https://drupal.org/search/site/example?f[3]=drupal_core%3A7234&f[4]=sm_field_project_type%3Afull&f[5]=ss_meta_type%3Amodule&solrsort=iss_project_release_usage+desc

Unfortunately, Drupal.org throws out your custom filters when you refine your search (everything, even the modules restriction, when using the sidebar, and merely your version or other customizations when using the top bar).

Maybe quickest is copying this query and replacing 'example' as many times as you need to.
