New Google Search Commands - Before: and After:
by Roger Montti, Search Engine Journal
April 10, 2019

Google’s Danny Sullivan today announced new search commands, the before: and after: commands. The new commands allows users to restrict searches to specific dates. The new search command is something Google is testing.

The commands accomplish the same functionality as the date range tools for restricting searches to specific date ranges.

According to Danny, the commands are:
“The before: & after: commands return documents before & after a date. You must provide year-month-day dates or only a year. You can combine both. For example:
[avengers endgame before:2019]
[avengers endgame after:2019-04-01]
[avengers endgame after:2019-03-01 before:2019-03-05]”
Danny Sullivan also provided power user tips:
“Power user note! If you provide only a year, before: & after: translates those into full dates that work, such as follows:
[before:2018] =
[before:2018-01-01]
[after:2018] =
[after:2018-12-31]”
Danny also indicated that you can use dashes or slashes in the dates and that single digits were ok to use ( 5 instead of 05)

Wow! That is awesome!

I think it just replaces their historical search thing they used to be but it seems a little more versatile. I like it!
