I'll add a couple things to that which may be helpful. If we're into the Google end of searching, especially.
The - / + signs are critical to effective power searching. For example. "abovetopsecret.com: fukushima" will bring a flood of hits, totally useless to
anyone. "abovetopsecret.com: fukushima +wrabbit2000 -russia" should give me every Fukushima hit on ATS where my name is a direct part of it while
excluding those which meet my name criteria but also have Russia somewhere in them.
Likewise..and even more critical? The "Search Tools" on the top of the Google line. That opens to a little submenu, and on that menu is an option
called "Anytime". Select "Custom Range" within that menu and a calendar pops up. Ignore the first field and just click any date from the calendar into
the second one. Without closing it, put your cursor in the second field and backspace the year or whatever part needs adjusted, to QUICKLY change it
to be useful...as opposed to manually flipping calendar pages in their applet for the right date to limit.
^^^ That's one of my tools for coming up with data in stories here that may date years back relating to a current story which has normal google
results FLOODED to uselessness in hits from today's reporting on it. It should work just as well in limiting ATS hits by date. At least, in theory
...which I'd guess will work more often than not, anyway.
Or... to make it easier Google Advanced Search Shortcuts
can be found in a minute or less if someone knows how to ask nicely. lol...
