How do I limit my Google searches to a particular domain (e.g., .edu or .gov)?

Option 1: Use Advanced Search

Look for the "site or domain" box in Google's Advanced Search options and enter the domain you'd like to search, as shown below.

Option 2: Add "site:-" 

You can also do this by adding (or .org, .gov, etc) to the end of your search terms in any Google search box. For example, to find articles about “ethical leadership” published on government websites, enter the terms "ethical leadership", as shown below.
