I am not clear on your question, so I'll assume this might help you.  Click on the page icon on the upper right of Chrome, select Find in page, and a box will drop down form the address bar. Fill that in with what you want to find.

Ctrl + F ....

Ctrl-F will find stuff on the page, not the entire web site.

On the Google toolbar for (I hesitate to mention it) Internet Explorer, there is a lower case g and a down arrow (with the context hint "Change search type" if you hover) next to the box where you type the search terms. One of the search types is "current site", so if you want to look for something on a web site, you can go to the site, type a word in the toolbar box and select current site. It will then come up with hits within the current site only.

I find it helpful when I'm looking for one particular thing in a big web site.

Can Chrome do this?

Hi carlton,

Have you set either one of these search engines (Google, Ask, Yahoo! or Live) as your Google Chrome default search engine?
These search engines have a site: search parameter that allows you to restrict your query on a certain website.

Example: if you want to search for google chrome in Lifehacker:
1. Select the address bar, type google site:lifehacker.com
2. Hit the Go (►) button, you will be redirected to your search engine's result page.

You can also use this bookmarklet courtesy from Google

javascript:d=document.domain;x=prompt('Google%20search%20'+d+'%20for:','');if(x){location.href=('http://www.google.com/search?as_q='+x+'&as_sitesearch='+d);}void(0);

When you reached to a website, hit that bookmarklet then enter your query. :]

Google is my default search engine.

Ok, so the answer if you want to search a web site:

1. Go to the site
2. In the address bar type "Site:" in front of http://
3. Get rid of everything after .com (or .whatever)
4. Type a space after the .com (or .whatever) and then the terms you want to search

Seems to work.

1. Type the begining of the website's address in the address bar ( Ex: For Deezer, Type D, E..)
2. Then press tab, (You will now make your search request over the whole deezer website)
3. Type whatever keywords you desire ;)

In the GoogleBar for Firefox or Internet Explorer, there was a button that did a search within site which had the same functionality as site:xyz.com, but did it automatically from whatever site you were currently in (so you did not have to type out site:xyz.com).. this functionality seems to be missing from Google Chrome.

If you want to search within a website from the "Omnibox" of Chrome, add the website to your search engine list. Tweak the keyword for the site, e.g. "g" for Google. Type the keyword for the site in the Omnibox. Hit Space on your keyboard. Then hit Tab. You can see the Omnibox now looks different. Now Type in whatever you want to search on this site. Enter.

If you are on the site you want to search, in the Chrome address bar put the cursor in front of "http://" and type the word you want to search for followed by "site:".  So it should look like this;    
"mykeyword site: http://www.mywebsite.com"

I have the perfect solution! Google Chrome does indeed have this functionality!
1. Right click omnibox, select edit search engines
2. Add Search engine
3. Name the search whatever you want (i used 'Current Site')
4. Put in the keyword you want (i used 'cs')
5. paste this into the url:
javascript:void(location.href='http://www.google.com/search?q=%s&domains='+location.hostname+'&sitesearch='+location.hostname)

When you are on a site that you want to search, (and using the keyword i chose) simply type "cs search term" into the omnibox. and there you go!

This is the best solution, but still wish there was a Google tool bar!

I like solutions where you solve a problem once... and leave a repeatable solution in place. This qualifies. Thx.

Add a search engine following timewarp91589's steps, or simply install my extension, here:

Excellent extension. Thank you so much. But when will Google build in the excellent search functionality available when using the Google toolbar in other browsers?
Re: How do I perform a search within a web site? Kevin0 6/25/10 4:22 PM
Timewarp is a lifesaver. Why add an extension when you can use existing functionality in Chrome?

Timewarp's reply helped, for those of us who are unaware of what is an OMNIBOX, it is nothing but the ADDRESS BAR
Re: How do I perform a search within a web site? umairmalik0071 2/4/12 9:25 AM
1. Ctrl+F (find in current page)

Re: How do I perform a search within a web site? umairmalik0071 2/4/12 9:31 AM
1. Ctrl+F (to find in current page)
2. In google's search bar OR  in chrome's address bar, write:
     search term [space] site:http://example.com (to search that whole website)

In Chromes omnibox type "site:www.sitename.com keyword"

Easy way to remember is:
  No spaces except before your keyword
  The site name is written like anyone would write it (no http://)
  And remember; it will not work in the regular google.com search box.
