The only option Google offers is to get results from the past hour. Is it possible to get results from the past 3 hours, for example? From the past 2 years would also be useful for me.

How to do a Google search for webpages last updated within 2 years?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

@ChrisF Thanks for all your great work. I wanted to point out that you made a mistake here. The OP @Gradient did not post of duplicate question. Anyone who closely reads the question will easily ascertain that what OP is asking could possibly better be put `How to filter Google search results less than > 1 hr AND < 24 hr. I hope you will do the right thing and unmark this as a dupe. The "accepted" answer isn't even the right answer, and the OP has objected (3 years ago) to this being marked a dupe as well. Than you. – CodeSlayer2010 Jan 4 at 13:08
@CodeSlayer2010 I have re-opened this question as I am inclined to agree with you. This question is about getting Google results on a per hour basis rather than per day (which is what the related question refers too) Thanks! – codingbadger Jan 5 at 20:09

For finding all google result from 2011-12-31 till 2012-12-31

  • add daterange:2455927-2456293 to your search term
  • you have to update both numbers every day you wanna do the search
  • this link helps you converting a date to a serial

You will get the same by using the custom range search option

enter image description here

Unfortunately you can't search for past 2 hours using the same method.

While this comment at least attempts to answer the poster, sadly, it distracts and confuses the issue by adding a graphic and an explanation of how to do a related, but different operation. The real answer is given as the sentence immediately following the graphic. – CodeSlayer2010 Jan 4 at 13:19
