I know there is a way to search so that the results are only sites.

Eg. Type: Site ^ Doesn't work

Does anyone know what the property is?

The following query should work:

{sitename} contentclass:STS_Web

where {sitename} is the text based on which you want to search the sites.


Create a new search scope and add a rule for Content Class = "STS_Web" Then make sure to require that this condition is met.

See this link for step-by-step instructions to add a new search scope.
