Filter Yahoo Search results

With Yahoo Search, you can refine your results to find exactly what you're looking for. Here's an overview of the filtering options you'll see.

Filtering your search

When you're looking for recent search results, check out the time-frame filters. You can refine your search for results that were published within these time frames:

  • Month

  Time travel: When you filter for specific categories (like news), more time-frame filters appear.
