"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" Albert Einstein

I do a lot of searches on Google. I also repeat a lot of searches a month or week later looking for new websites or information. The problem, which I am sure you have experienced, is the same results come back again and again. To see the newest stuff I use the advance search button to the right of where you type in your search on Google’s main page. Once you click the link you see tons of options. The ones we care about, for this post anyway, are the date options. Click near the bottom where it says Date, usage rights…….and so on. Finally the box we need is in front of us. Change the date option from anytime to your choice. I usually start out with the past month and I many try lowering it a couple of times till I get just what I am looking for. Now all I do is use the search boxes at the top to write what I am looking for just like normal. When I am finished I hit enter or click advanced search. You should see the newest of new results. I usually will save the search as a bookmark to save time in the future. Also you will notice on the results page a box to change the date conditions. So if you are tired of out of date results give this one a try.
