Google Search Tools – A menu you might not even know is there

By 21 October 2020Search Engines, Sourcing Tools

Sourcing Hat now has a YouTube channel. This is the first video in my Google Search Tips for Recruiters series.

Here we look at Google’s search tools. It’s essential to know about the Tools menu if you regularly source on Google.

Google’s Tools menu can help you filter your results by location, age/time, as well as get a more accurate interpretation of your search string.


We covered Google search by country or region, filtering our results by date, and using Google’s verbatim option to give us better results for our complex search queries.
