Pages originating from specified country: ...

The short and sad answer is: You can't! If you're interested in results pertaining to coding/sysadmin'ing, I'd go for http://symbolhound.com/ - it's a search engine that literally takes your literal search queries literal, but it's focused on subjects relevant to coding and system development so it only works well for searches in these or related domains.

This is a really silly situation. The answer really only deserves a single line: I had safe search turned on. Somehow I took a screenshot of that, and didn't notice.

While there is no official statement on the matter, from what I've been able to gather by trial and error, this frustrating feature seems to exist to try and push users into searches which yield more sponsored results, thus it'll probably never get a toggle. Fortunately the frustration can be reduced with an amazing extension called uBlock Origin. In ...

Simplest method without scripts or any other troublesome stuff. Tried and tested in Firefox and Internet Explorer. Reload/refresh the page (F5) (because Step 2 will work only if you haven't already clicked the link). "Right-click and hold" on some empty space away from the link. Move your mouse pointer (with right button still depressed) over the link. ...

Why use Tineye and then search for text on Google? Search for the image on Google and use the date range like you were: google search Remember, you can just drag and drop an image into Google image search (it'll even figure out the name of the image like it did in my search example) which is pretty awesome actually.

You can use The Wayback Machine to view those pages. Just right click on the Next and Previous, and copy their link locations.

All the other ...

After a while I found a solution; it’s possible to use: http://www.google.com/webhp?#q=yourquery&btnI=I It will always send you to the first result, but sometimes it will half render google.com before redirecting you.
