File Type Limit Syntax AlltheWeb

In addition to the file type limit on their advanced search page for PDF files, Flash files, and Microsoft Word files there is now syntax which can be used directly in the search box:

  • filetype:pdf
  • filetype:flash
  • filetype:msword
Note the difference from Google which uses filetype:doc for MS Word files as opposed to AlltheWeb's new filetype:msword. AlltheWeb review, search feature chart, and search engines by feature have all been updated. Thanks to Gary Price for this find.
