Get Google results that matter

More than once I have searched for something on Google and gotten back too many results that don’t matter.  One of the problems with IT is that everything moves and improves quickly.  It’s such a pain when get results that over 2 years old and don’t matter because the technology has moved on.

Use the advanced search of Google to get results that are relevant.  You can tell Google what date range to use (how recent the page is), for example past week, past month, past year.  That way you will only get pages in the results that are from the your date range.  This helps when you’re working with bleeding edge technologies.
