|I have the habit of looking at the date of things I consume online, it gives me a sense of relevance and context, both when I'm looking for things that are "from now" but more importantly when I'm looking for things given a temporal context, for instance, programming for an old compiler, finding out how to do something with an old piece of hardware or electronics.|
I feel like I'm encountering more and more sites and articles where I can't seem to find the date.
Google will return irrelevant results from today rather than relevant results from 10 years ago.
I feel it's getting worse, is it just me?
