Searching for MP3s on the net

Can’t remember where I found this tip, but it’s a great one.

Looking for SonicEncoders, try replacing the mp3 with sonicencoders.msi!

People leave music files in unprotected directories all of the time. Here’s how to get to them.
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” 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.
