TIP: Getting latest version in Google search

We all know that Google will usually supply older versions of the Help pages, because by virtue of their age, they’ve accrued more hits over the years.

For instance, the search “Dorico erase background” gives me two Help pages from version 2; followed by forum pages, then Youtube, Facebook, etc, etc.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, changing the search to “Dorico v4 erase background” gives me the same two Help pages, but from the version 4 mañuel; then results from elsewhere. I also get more results from this forum, and the 4.1 Version History.
