I recently discovered something I have been using fairly regularly. I am probably late to the party here but I learned Google has a date filter for your searches. As all developers know, you can have 2 days or 20 years of experience and your number of searches per day will stay the same. Due to this I welcome anything to make my daily searches more efficient.
If you use Google as your search engine, append “before:YYYY” or/and “after:YYYY” to filter out unwanted results.
Twitter account, Google SearchLiason explains it best here : “The before: & after: commands return documents before & after a date. You must provide year-month-day dates or only a year. You can combine both. For example:
[avengers endgame before:2019] [avengers endgame after:2019-04-01] [avengers endgame after:2019-03-01 before:2019-03-05]”
Google has had this date filter for a while but it was hidden in the “Tools” menu. Now you can add the before/after terms to your search and achieve the same result.
Hopefully you find this as useful as I do.
