Google News advanced search only lets me search news article by date from the last month.

Is there any similar site where I can search for news articles or trends by date for the last decade or so? I'm especially interested in times of early Iraq War (2003-2006).

When you search for "Iraq war" on News.google.com, you'll see "Archives" option on the left pane under "Any recent news".

Clicking on it will bring new options as follows:

You can either click on any year or click on "Custom Range..." to select a range. This is the result for your case:

  • Thanks, that's perfect. Now that you've shown me where it is, I don't know how I could have missed it.

    @taw: You're welcome. It's a pity that the germane option is not available in Advanced Search. Jul 27, 2011 at 13:05

    I asked on Google Forums (google.com/support/forum/p/news/… ), if it doesn't work I'll try poking my contacts within Google, maybe they'll add it.

    @taw: Good point. I hope they add it. Jul 27, 2011 at 13:57

Use the 'daterange:[startdate]-[enddate]' operator

The only downside is that it uses the Julian date format.


searchterm daterange:2452000-2452435

A more detailed explanation of the 'daterange:' operator can be found @ cnet.
