in thread search a foreign directory

You dont have to go to the advanced search page. Altavista supports (amongst others) these nice little shortcuts:

+host:domain.com - only search for results on this domain
+link:domain.com - only search for results that link to domain.com

The latter is useful when you want to see who's linked to your site :)

Just include them along with your search term to restrict. This means you can create a search of the site easily by auto populating a search box with the +host:domain.com string and allowing users to enter their term. Or use JavaScript to hide the term and present an empty search box.
