Advanced Search for websites
Narrow down web results for complex searches by using the Advanced Search page. For information on filtering images results, learn about Advanced Search for images.
Get to the Advanced Search page
- Go directly to http://www.google.com/advanced_search.
- Click the gear icon in the top right corner of a search results page > Advanced Search.
How the Advanced Search page works
Enter your search terms, then choose one or more filters to change the results you see. These filters can help you find the most relevant information possible the first time you search. For example, you can create a search to find websites written in Spanish that have "Paella" in the title and were updated in the last 24 hours.
Filters you can use
- Last updated date
- Site or domain
- Where the search terms appear on the page
- Reading level
- File type
- Usage rights
You can also use search operators to create many of these filters without visiting the Advanced Search page. Learn about the search operators that work on Google.
