Google: Find Free MP3s, WMAs, OGGs, and Other Music Files

People leave music files in unprotected directories all of the time. Here’s how to get to them. Come get your free mp3s.


We all need music. If you properly query google, you can find open indexes of music files easily. Here are some hints to get you started.

Google: -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:”index of” “Last modified” mp3

    Using this string we are using the “index of” and the inurl commands to attempt to isolate directories only. The mp3 tag on the end tells google to look for mp3s in these open directories. You can change this to wma or ogg if you wish.

You can add additional search criteria to focus your search more.

Google: -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:”index of” mp3 “pearl jam”

    This command will find open directories with mp3 files with Pearl Jam. Obviously you can change the band name or file type to better define your search.

    site:google.com fox – will find all sites containing the word fox, located within the *.google.com

    intitle:fox fire – will find all sites with the word fox in the title and fire in the text

    allintitle:fox fire – will find all sites with the words fox and fire in the title, so it’s equivalent to intitle:fox
    intitle:fire

    Hello friends!

    allintitle:fox fire – will find all sites with the words fox and fire in the title, so it’s equivalent to intitle:fox
    intitle:fire

    simple query such as filetype:xls inurl:”email.xls” can be surprisingly effective, finding Excel spreadsheet called email.xls

    just query Google for intitle: “curriculum vitae” “phone * * * ” “address *” “e-mail”. Finding
    contact information in the form of names, phone number and email addresses is equally easy
