I had no idea where to post this, so here goes...
I am doing a university research project about a topic which is quite new (I doubt it would have been heard of ten years ago, for example). I want to try and trace the awareness of this topic in the online media and it would be great to be able to go back a few years at a time and see the search engine results for certain keywords at different time periods.
Basically, a bit like when Google did their Search 2001 index thing - [google.com
...] - which is no longer available.
(Obviously, I can search by article year, but it's not the same as seeing results from an old index).
Does anyone have any idea how I might be able to approach this? Initially, I only want to do some casual research, to get an idea of the development of this topic?
