Simple question: I wonder whether it is possible to perform a Google search omiting all results from 2012 on, for example.

On Google.com, after you have done a search, you can click the Tools button (rightmost button under the search bar AFTER you have searched). If you do this, some options become available, one of which is time. The presets are all for finding recent results, but with the Custom Range option, you can also specify anything before a certain date (just leave the From field open)
