    Hi,
    I am hoping that someone can help me. I need to find a specific website but the URL is not complete.
    This is what I have to search for - https://ete*.pro/i**ite/G**ONYYW
    Nothing that I have tried has worked.
    Thanks
    Johan

    We don't click on unknown webpage links, so I didn't click yours.

    What's the name of the website you're looking for?
    Have you tried doing a Google or Bing search for it?

    That's the problem. I need to find the site and that is the only information that I have. I am on a site where I get paid to do searches but this one I cannot find. I've been active there for over 3 months and have never been sent to a dodgy site.
    I have tried every trick I know in Google using wild cards and domain specific searches but no luck. Google does not seem to have a search option for a missing letter wildcard only for missing words.

    I'll try Bing. I've not used that before. Do I need to install a search bar?

    Every one wants a search engine that "knows what you mean..." but that's not a real thing yet.
    And no, you do not have to install a search bar, it'll take over your browser, if you allow it. you can just got the search site and opt out of the bar, or any other "cling ons" that entail.
    Or if installed, you can still remove it, via any Windows Add/Remove version (assuming that's your OS)

    I did click on your link, and right clicked, but appears invalid.

    There are lots of search engines, some are category specific...
    HERE is a basic list of common search engines.

    No disrespect meant, you if you're paid you should know/try all and with different browsers too.
    Just my two centavos worth .

    And valuable centavos they are too :) Unfortunately the company dictates the search criteria, in this case Google, but since I can't find it there my pernicity nature insists that I find it.
    I will try the other search engines. Thanks.

    I have managed to narrow the search down but the link appears to be an affiliate referral link therefore it can actually not be found.
