Google Search Tip - Filter Google Results Datewise or Weekwise or Monthwise or Yearwise

Filter Google Results Datewise/Weekwise/Monthwise/Yearwise


Filtering Google searches by time periods is one of the many hidden features of Google. By manipulating the search URL, you can trigger Google’s filter by data dropdown box to appear. With this drop down box, you can easily select what time dates you want Google to filter the results.


I often want to search for updated news on a common search term. For example, say you wanted to search for Site4Sites news for the last 24 hrs. Using this little Google hack, you can focus your search over whichever time period you want.


First go to http://www.google.com and search for your search term. I'm going to use "Site4Sites" as my example.


Obviously, I receive the highest ranked searches all-time for Site4Sites.


First Window: - http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Site4Sites&btnG=Google+Search


Next, Open New window, just add &as_qdr=d to the end of the URL and press ENTER.


Second Window: - http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Site4Sites&btnG=Google+Search&as_qdr=d   NOW COMPARE


Note: - Just change the =d to d5 for 5 days, or w5 for five weeks, or y5 for 5 year, etc.
