The term "X-Ray search" was popularized in the early years of online recruitment, and it stuck. If you haven't heard the term before, it just means using the site: operator. While the idea is old, strong X-Ray search skills have only grown more important over time.

Increasing decentralization of data requires sourcers to identify and explore new sites quickly for details about target professionals. X-Ray search skills are also crucial for well-known sites (e.g., LinkedIn or Facebook) due to 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 a range of examples, including many of today's most popular social and professional networks.
