Google Search has been updated to allow searching for keywords from the past three years.
Users can now search for terms from the last three years, which are also searchable using the Japanese equivalent of the Google+ social network.
The new search engine has been integrated into Google Chrome, but users can still access the website via Safari.
“The search results have been refreshed in the past months and are available in the Japanese version of Google Chrome,” the company said.
“When searching for information from the years prior to 2018, the results are displayed using the Google Plus Search API.”
Google has been widely criticised for its lack of online content and its reliance on a handful of ad-serving companies, which have come under fire from Google users who want to see more content from them.
Google’s search results include ads that are not displayed to users.
However, some advertisers have argued that Google has a legitimate need to provide more relevant information about their content, and they have criticised the company for its reliance in the search engine.
“Google’s algorithm is heavily weighted in favour of ad revenue over search results and, as a result, Google is failing to provide the user with the information they are looking for, and Google’s own search results are far from up to scratch,” AdSense, the ad network for Google, said in a blog post.
“In many ways, Google’s search algorithm is so bad that, for example, you won’t find a lot of quality content from the UK or the US, and many ads will not appear in the results.”
“Google does a poor job of presenting search results for content and that’s something that needs to change,” it added.
