Is currency an important factor in your search query?Try Google date-limiting and restrict your search results by a date specification that you set.
To use date-limiting, go to advance search on the Google home page, click on “date, usage rights, numeric range, and more.” Choose a date from the pull down menu – past 24 hours, past 2 months ...
You can also create a unique date specification by adding “&as_qdr=dn” to your SERP (search engine results page) URL, where n is the number of days.For example “&as_qdr=dn14” will limit you search results to pages spidered or updated over the past 14 days.
