Quick tips to search the web like an expert - How to use Google

Tip 9:

Numeric Ranges

This is a rarely used, but highly useful tip.

If you want to find results that contain any of a range of numbers, you can do this by using the X..Y modifier (in case this is hard to read, what's between the X and Y are two full-stops.

This type of search is useful for years (as shown below), prices or anywhere where you want to provide a series of numbers.

Example: president 1940..1950
