The fastest dork scanner written in Go.



License contributions welcome

The fastest dork scanner written in Go.

There are also various search engines supported by go-dork, including Google, Shodan, Bing, Duck, Yahoo and Ask.


  • Download a prebuilt binary from releases page, unpack and run! or
  • If you have Go 1.15+ compiler installed and configured:
> GO111MODULE=on go get -v -u


Basic Usage

It's fairly simple, go-dork can be run with:

> go-dork -q "inurl:'...'"


> go-dork -h

This will display help for the tool. Here are all the switches it supports.

Flag Description
-q/--query Search query (required)
-e/--engine Provide search engine (default: Google)
(options: Google, Shodan, Bing, Duck, Yahoo, Ask)
-p/--page Specify number of pages (default: 1)
-H/--header Pass custom header to search engine
-x/--proxy Use proxy to surfing
-s/--silent Silent mode, prints only results in output


> go-dork -q "inurl:..."

Queries can also be input with stdin

> cat dorks.txt | go-dork -p 5

Defining engine

Search engine can be changed from the available engines: Google, Shodan, Bing, Duck, Yahoo, Ask. However, if the -e flag is not defined, it will use the Google search engine by default.

> go-dork -e bing -q ".php?id="

This will do a search by the Bing engine.


By default, go-dork scrapes the first page, you can customize using the -p flag.

> go-dork -q "intext:'jira'" -p 5

It will search sequentially from pages 1 to 5.

Adding custom headers

Maybe you want to use a search filter on the Shodan engine, you can use custom headers to add cookies or other header parts.

> go-dork -q "org:'Target' http.favicon.hash:116323821" \
  --engine shodan -H "Cookie: ..." -H "User-Agent: ..."

Using proxy

Using a proxy, this can also be useful if Google or other engines meet Captcha.

> go-dork -q "intitle:'BigIP'" -p 2 -x

Chained with other tools

If you want to chain the go-dork results with another tool, use the -s flag.

> cat dorks.txt | go-dork | pwntools
> go-dork -q "inurl:'/secure' intext:'jira' site:org" -s | nuclei -t workflows/jira-exploitaiton-workflow.yaml

    Chain with nuclei doesn't work

    when running the command set in the example to chain with other tools like nuclei, for jira, after I debug this is what showed up [WRN] [microstrategy-detect] Could not execute request for : parse "\x1b[32m/\x1b[0m": net/url: invalid control character in URL This doesn't happen if I save the urls into a file and cat those out; nuclei will correctly identify the technologies. So.. is there anyway you could fix the pipe option? I believe it's because your logo still shows up in silent mode. Thank you so much. Let me know if you need more examples

  • input from dorks in stdin is all added into a single query

    input from dorks in stdin is all added into a single query

    if you have in your dorks file like this: "Index of/"

    the script will read and transform in a query as ["Index of"]. All the dorks are added to the query in a single line, which decreases the odds of getting any desirable result. As a workaround, what I'm doing is basically cat dorks | xargs -I {} go-dork -q "{}" -e . Works just fine Because of this, it would be nice to run from stdin and for each line on dorks file adding a new line in the query. So, instead of interpreting each line as new data to be added to a single query, just run it for each line and run as a single query for each line: query "index of/" --> search query " --> search

    Wonderful tool, never the less. Very good job!
