    Google query to search for results only in the last 6 months?

    Hello,

    When doing a google search I know you can narrow it down to recent results by going to search tools and then choosing a timeframe.

    Is it possible to do this by entering it directly into the search bar like you can for site:?

    Thanks in advance

    Re: Google query to search for results only in the last 6 months?

    There are "date:" and "daterange:" operators but they are for indexed/modified date, need to be used in Julian calendar format, and will get you a "unusual activity" message or captcha pretty quickly.

    The best way to do it is via the URL. You can add &tbs=qdr:X to any search string where X equals the value for the time period to search.

    n for minute
    h for hour
    d for day
    w for week
    m for month
    y for year

    You can also ad a number after the time period to search that many increments of that time period. So m6 would be six months.

    Examples:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=local+seo&tbs=qdr:m6 Will return pages with local seo from the last 6 months.

    http://www.google.com/search?q=site:localsearchforum.catalystemarketing. com&tbs=qdr:d14 Will return pages from this forum from the last 14 days.


    Have fun.
