Google school:Filter Google Results by Date with a URL Trick

Just found that, I think it's pretty good - and saves time =) And you don't have to use the advanced search form. :mrgreen:

Google can reorder search and news results from the last day, week, a few months, or entire year by adding a small string to the end of the search URL. Just add this string'&as_qdr=d'to the address bar and hit enter. You'll get a custom drop-down box that lets you re-order results based on date. It's great for getting past the same top results you've already looked through, as well as grabbing only the newest links related to gadgets, software, or whatever else you're searching. Sadly it doesn't work on Google Images, but let us know in the comments if it does work on other Google searches.




Edited: There's also a bookmarklet for that - scroll a little bit down, second link.

Thank you for this tip! Your links aren't working for me, but I figured it out.
