Google Advanced Search & Google Shortcuts: How to use it

Take advantage of Google's Advanced Search which will focus your search precisely on the subject, sources, date, and format of the information you're seeking.

Using a Time Frame

Sometimes you may want to only find information published during a specific time frame. To limit Google results by date, click on Tools, then click on Any Time and choose the filter or Custom Date Range that interests you. 

The example below shows results for the 2016 presidential election that were published prior to the election.
