Advanced X-Ray Searching logo

The term "X-Ray search" was popularized in the early years of online recruitment, and it stuck. If you haven't heard the term, it just means using the site: operator.

Increasing decentralization of data requires sourcers to quickly identify and explore new sites for details about target professionals. X-Ray search skills are also crucial for well-known sites (e.g., LinkedIn or Facebook) due to the limitations of those sites' internal search capabilities.

Beyond understanding the site: operator, which we will explain in detail, you must also be able to pick out common and specific elements (such as parts of URLs, page titles, or key phrases in the pages' text) within the pages of sites. Searching for these elements in conjunction with the site: operator allows for more exact searches.

We will show you how to select these elements efficiently and increase your X-Ray "X"pertise! We'll also review various examples, including many of today's most popular social and professional networks.

Our new ebook, based on the ideas presented in this course, is now available for pre-order and will release the same day as the upcoming Lecture. You can purchase the ebook bundled with the class at a discount, or pre-order the book separately here.
