Advanced Search

Narrow down web results for complex searches by using the Advanced Search page. For example, find websites written in Spanish that have "Paella" in the title and were updated in the last 24 hours. Or find black and white images of New York.

How the Advanced Search page works

  1. Enter your search terms in the “Find pages with” section.
  2. Choose the filters you want to use in the “Then narrow your results by” section. You can use one or more filters.
  3. Click Advanced Search.
You can also add many of these filters in the search box using search operators.
