Google's Advanced Search by date is broken!

This big bug has existed for almost a year or more!



According to Google Help Center:

Advanced Search Made Easy

"You can do a lot more with Google search than just typing in search terms. With Advanced Search, you can search only for pages:"

"that have been updated within a certain period of time"

"Date: restrict your results to the past three, six, or twelve month periods."

Unfortunately, this "feature" does not work. The user will get the same search results for the restrictions to the past three, six, or twelve months periods!

Google's search by date is broken


Clearly, Google has no quality control of search results any longer.

Example 1. 2007-02-23 14.15 GMT. Google.com adwords

Results 1 - 100 of about 14,300,000 over the past 3 months for adwords. (0.16 seconds)

Results 1 - 100 of about 14,300,000 over the past 6 months for adwords. (0.16 seconds)

Results 1 - 100 of about 14,300,000 over the past year for adwords. (0.16 seconds)

Example 2. 2007-02-23 14.20 GMT. Google.com adsense

Results 1 - 100 of about 34,800,000 over the past 3 months for adwords. (0.18 seconds)

Results 1 - 100 of about 34,800,000 over the past 6 months for adwords. (0.18 seconds)

Results 1 - 100 of about 34,800,000 over the past year for adwords. (0.18 seconds)

Compare the examples above with the boasting statements by Google.com

"Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful."

"Google is the closest thing the Web has to an ultimate answer machine."
