What is combing?
Combing is a very effective search strategy: instead of simply searching, you use various other net resources:
-The continuously updated "Top 100" or "Top 1000" URL-locations
Obviously combing is an important technique for whatever interest you may have, quite
useful in order to spare an incredible lot of Internet searching hours.
-Usenet newsgroups and their various "vigilant filters" and "short range queries"
-Relevant site links pages.
We'll use it here to wage battle against our "commercial smut" enemies, but you would be well advised
to learn it and use it for *any* interest you may have...
Case study, combing commercial smut depots
death to the pornodealers
Warning: you better set the option "autoload images" OFF inside your Netscape
settings, else you'll pretty soon regret having accessed this kind of sites...
you will not loose anything... NONE of the images they carry is worth loading...
should you really want nice "sexually explicit" images (for free of course, and
please excuse the
pathetic euphemism), then visit the many artists that
expose their own work on the net... on the sites we are going to destroy
(see how in the CGI-reverse engineering page) you'll not even find any "pornography" whatsoever, only fetid smut.
Let's start with a typical "combing" approach, I will not hyperlink because
I do not want this site spidered along these links, but you may cut and
paste the following URLs:
http://www.hitbox.com/wc/world2.html ;TOP1000 "normal", example for useful combing
http://www.hitbox.com/wc/adult.html ;TOP1000 "adult", main entrance
http://www.hitbox.com/wc/top10.adult.html ;top 10 smut commercial
http://www.hitbox.com/wc/top2100.adult.html ;top > 2100... understand the "name"
I do not want this page catalogued inside the smut information retrievers, therefore
the above links are not hyperlinked... cut and paste them in order to use them.
http://www.digits.com/top/both_adult_100.html ;top site has here "only" 540000 a day
http://www.digits.com/top/comm_adult_100.html ;top site has here "only" 124000 a day
Etcetera... you understand the trick now... here are some other ones
various smut counters:
http://www.sexhound.com/index.cgi?from=16818 this one uses CGI! :-)
For combing purposes you may also use:
1) the usual search engines (which give incredible results at time!)
2) ftp search, looking for "hidden" subdirectories with relevant names
3) the "big page provider" search engines (like the ones on geocities or mygale)
As you can see from the above short information,
1.1) many "counters' statistics" betray quite a lot of useful information... if, for
you are interested in jellyfishes (it's an example!) you would be well advised,
instead of searching the web for ages, to have a quick look at all the pages that
inside the counters' statistics, fall under the counter's main categories "biology" or "science"... pretty soon
you would find the "golden link" you were looking for...
1.2) We need MANY addresses of SMUT dealers in order to find the
many that utilise a CGI-script (or other attackpoints) in order to
know "from which site" they got the query... as you'll see on the
cgi reverse engineering page
of this section, this opens the way to their doom!
2) As anybody that uses
ftp search ("This server is located in
already knows, the ftp search approach (that fishes hidden directories) can fish incredible (if tricky to interpret) results.
3) For other combing purposes (not for smut dealers, of course) you may use also the
search systems specific to the big free pages providers...have a search at
http://www.geocities.com/search/ and you'll understand
what I mean
Combing on the Usenet
Usenet combing can work "on the fly" or "regularly" through the "Vigilant"
I'll show you for instance one of my queries:
FIND how-to-search tutorial manual
NOT top position
Such a query would give you useful information about "searching techniques" on
the Web, you may of course construct how many queries you like and *register*
(for free) by the vigilant filter, in order to get
the results of your usenet queries emailed to you every day or week or
Usenet query can also be done through the two big Usenet "depots": Dejanews and
email query, that are explained elsewhere
on my site.
Many of the main
search engines allow such querying
too, using the services of either Dejanews or emailquery.
Good luck, good hunt!
