Limiting Google Research to multiple web-sites using the OR and site: operators

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/01/22

I knew Google Search had a site: operator and I thought you could or them together using something like this:

reboot site:superuser.com or site:android.stackexchange.com

To my surprise that returned zero results as in empty result list.

Indeed: the OR needs to be in uppercase to work:

you can use the OR operator to add another site to your query:

reboot site:superuser.com OR site:android.stackexchange.com

“View Image” button in Google Image Search

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/10

Hopefully by now the extensions below still work, as Google removed the “View Image” button in Google Image Search a few years back.

When not: these might help finding an updated method (:

Google old content posted before a specific date

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/15

Steps:

  1. Start with something like https://www.google.com/search?q=”did+you+hear+about+the+man”+”he%27s+0K+now”
  2. Clicking Tools followed by Any Time, then Custom range often does not show a dialog.
  3. Appending &tbs=qdr:y to the URL magically enables that popup:
    https://www.google.com/search?q=”did+you+hear+about+the+man”+”he%27s+0K+now”&tbs=qdr:y
  4. After filling it in, you get a very different URL like https://www.google.com/search?q=”did+you+hear+about+the+man”+”he%27s+0K+now”&tbs=cdr:1,cd_min:,cd_max:01-01-2007

This is how I found the post in Did you hear about the man who got cooled to absolute zero? He’s 0K now.

I think cdr stands for custom date range and qdr for a built in date range as after searching for the abbreviations, I found [WayBack] Google Search URL Request Parameters | DETECTED that discusses tbm and tbo in addition to tbs.

The trick above is the successor of [WayBack] Filter Google Results by Date with a URL Trick which appended &as_qdr=d.
