A bit of an odd question, but if I wanted to search for the symbol ":" in Google, how would I go about doing that (and would it even be possible)?

I found this article (blogspot.com), but that's not what I'm looking for ... A search for [:] just gives you the word "colon", but what if I want to find instances of the ":" symbol itself?
