You can limit your google search by date, useful if your search results are returned full of older links that are out of date.
Put a date restriction on your results by:
1. Click on the Tools button under Google’s search bar
2. Click on the “Any Time” drop-down.
3. Narrow your results to the previous week, month, year, or a custom time frame.
If you’re looking for an article you read a while back, but can’t find now — or if you specifically want to see what one of your most trusted sites has to say about a topic — you can use the site: operator to limit your search to that specific web site. Sometimes this is more effective than a site’s built-in search bar.
• Type site:[URL address] [search terms}
• Example: site:nytimes.com iowa coronavirus
Wondering where a certain photo came from?. You probably know you can type a few words to find a photo with Google’s Image Search, but you might not have realized it works in the other direction too:
Drag an image into Image Search and Google will find other versions of that photo for you.
Google isn’t the only site that has this feature, either. TinEye is a similar tool with a few more options, if you’re trying to find where the image first appeared.
