Google Search Trick

I discovered yesterday that Google was returning results from all years by default. I changed that so Google will return results no more than a year old. Use this trick with caution if you are doing deep research.

1. Search as you normally would. This screenshot shows the Chrome browser:

2. See the “Tools” option at the far right? Click on that.

3. Then select whatever time period you would like:

4. Google now sorts the results accordingly.
