Does Google make you feel lucky Section 1.4? How lucky? Sometimes as lucky as the top result is, more results from the same domain are just as much so.

This hack performs two Google queries. The domain of the top result of the first search is saved. Then the second query is run, searching only the saved domain for results.

Take, for example, Grace Hopper, famous both as a computer programmer and as the person who coined the term “computer bug.” If you were to run a search result with "Grace Hopper" as the primary search and overlay a search for COBOL on the domain of the first result returned, you’d find three pages for the Grace Hopper Conference 2000:
