I'm curious about the etymology (aka "origin") of this image I found on the web:
How would I go about finding the earliest websearch result for this image?
Yes, I can use TinEye to find other instances of the image (253 for the record, but not all of them are actual matches), but I want the earliest, first, and possibly original place this image appeared on the internet. In other words, where on the web did this image originate?
I suppose I can search for something like
scarface snowman in Google, and perhaps set the "custom date range" on the advanced search Google options in the left sidebar like so:
Custom [date] range...
... and then keep manually adjusting 1/1/2007 "up" until I get the first hits for this phrase in time. When I do that, I get to 1/1/2010 and find this result:
Which Google dates as Dec 20, 2009. However, I'm not confident this is the first time the image appeared on the web; it's just the first time the phrase appeared on the web. It is a start but not much more.
How else can I find out the origin of this image via web search or web apps? Is there any other better way?
