Search Mediafire for Files

A Ghacks reader wanted to know if there is a way to search the popular file hoster Mediafire for files. He did not mention exactly what kind of files, and it does not really matter as it is possible to find any kind of file with the following method. Mediafire is one of the longest standing and most popular file hosters out there, like for the fact that it is not limiting download speeds or imposing wait times on users who download files from it.

There is no official option to browse what Mediafire stores on its servers, which is common among file hosters. There are however enough third party search options available. You can use indexing sites or a search engine like Google, Yahoo or Bing directly to find files on Mediafire.com

The basic command for searching sites is "site:url", for Mediafire it would be "site:mediafire.com" The following is a list of example search queries that reveal lots of files of the type that you specified:

  • site:mediafire.com mp3
  • site:mediafire.com zip
  • site:mediafire.com avi

search mediafire

It is possible to combine filetypes, just add a | between each file type. This would look like this then:

  • site:mediafire.com mp3 | ogg

You can also search for specific filenames, just replace the filetype with the filename:

  • site:mediafire.com e-book

Here are some stats taken from Google. Google has indexed almost 45000 links to mp3 files that are hosted at Mediafire, 20000 zip files, 6200 avi files and 42000 rar files. Not all files are working though. If Mediafire deletes a file it will still be shown for some time in the search engine that you have used.

Update: You can use the method to find other types of files of course, like rar archives or mkv movie files. It is also possible to search another hoster or website if you want so that you can try and find the files you are looking for there.

      It doesn’t work because thew information and instrictions are incorrect. You search (using Google for example) for:

      site:mediafire.com mp3

        I think it is WinAce that you need or a unpacker supporting that format.

      If I was searching for Lady Gaga, I would type this into Google.
      site:mediafire.com Lady Gaga
      That should get results.. (replace mediafire.com with the URL of your favorite file storage host.

      The easiest way is just to use a DDL file search engine like UVRX. (Uses a more complex set of commands)
