Google search results do no not have the option any longer to sort by "most recent" results.  Google has taken away that option.  I have depended on that option since the 1990's. I can no longer use Google.  What a shame that Google keeps taking away options.

I've referred this for investigation.
Meanwhile, I encourage you to send feedback direct to Google. Click "Send feedback" at the bottom of the search results page.

Not being able to sort by date is kind of crippling for a lot of the searches that I do. I know that YouTube was having the same problem for several days before they fixed it, but I use the option to sort by date on YouTube primarily for leisure. On Google, I'm more often using it for business.

Not ideal obviously but you can go to Tools -> Any Time dropdown and filter by time range.

You can still sort by "date" or by "relevance" when viewing the "NEWS" results, but not when viewing general search results.

Yes ... really sorry that option is gone. If I do a site search (Google site:xyz.com bla bla) the dates are randomly sorted.
Date sorting may not always entirely be correct, but at least there was some sort of sorting...

Hope Google can fix this (restore that option).

Wonder though why it has been removed in the first place.
