Gulf News search tip

While both Gulf News and Khaleej Times offer archive searches on their sites, I tend to find it is quicker and more comprehensive to search GulfNews via Google.

You can do this by typing:

site:gulfnews.com [your search terms]
site:gulf-news.com [your search terms]

So to find articles about David Beckham buying a house on The Palm, you would try:

site:gulfnews.com dubai palm beckham
site:gulf-news.com dubai palm beckham

This method also works for Khaleej Times, but their own search is usually better than Google's, so you probably won't need it.

Thanks for the tip, SD. And remember folks, it works on most any site, whether they have their own search-function or not.

an easier (lazier) way i've found is to just type

"gulfnews dubai palm beckham"

the same works with wikipedia (because the front page of their website sucks)

I just use the google toolbar thingy and say, for instance type in

wikipedia dubai

POW!
