One thing I don't like about Google Search is that it often includes results that are very very old. Is there a way to permanently turn off old results, like block all results older than two years? If I ever wanted to search for older results too, mind you this is rare, there would be a feature for temporarily turning them on again.
This is possible with Opera (or another browser that allows you to specify/edit search engine URLs). Simply put, you just need to add "&as_qdr=y2" (without quotes) to the URL.
Detailed instructions for Opera:
- Click the Opera button -> Settings -> Preferences
- Click Search tab
- Double-click Google
- Click Details >>
- Add "&as_qdr=y2" (without quotes) to the end of the Address field
- Click OK twice and you're done
Anytime you search from anywhere in Opera, you'll only see results from the last 2 years.
