    I'm not sure if this is the right place to comment but I will do nonetheless! 

    I like the idea of Ecosia but I am finding it hard to continue using it. The reason for this is that, for some reason, when searching for articles or posts on a subject, the search results from Ecosia seem to generally be from about 3 or 4 years ago or older. These aren't helpful for me. 

    I see at the top of the page there is a time filter but this only goes up to 1 month. This gives me the choice of either having articles from 3 or 4 years in the past or up to 1 month ago.  Both are extremes and neither are particularly helpful for me.

    Could you change your time filter to include 1 or 2 years as options? 

    Many thanks!
