Google Quick Tip #17

How many ways can you slice your search results? Well, Google can show you by displaying your results in different formats.


By typing in the phrase view:timeline after your search words, your results will display as seen below.

For example, I searched for harold varmus view:timeline

* The graph summarizes how dates in your results are spread through time

* The higher bars represent a larger number of unique dates

* Click time periods on the graph to zoom in to that particular period of time

* Can search the text box to the right to specify any range of years, months, or days

You can also select any of the other options above the graph to display your results in a list, info, or map view.

For you history buffs, check out the results for a search on world war 2 view:timeline
