Psst! Want some real time search in ya Google?

I’ve picked up a batch from the same people that make Açaí “detox-weight-loss-live-forever” supplements, so you know it’s the real deal!

You in?

OK, all you have to do is make a slight change to the output URL for any Google search. It’s easy.

Conduct a search for anything and change the filter to show results for just the past 24 hours. Like so:

See that qdr:d at the end? That tells Google to show results from the past day. Go ahead and change that to qdr:n and you’ll get results from the past minute!

Cool huh? And if you change the “n” to an “s” you’ll get results from the past second–but you can’t handle that much real-time goodness.

What’s that you say? These are just results discovered in the past minute, not necessarily published in the past minute? Listen, do you want these real-time results or not? I tell you what, I’ll even throw in some Açaí berries for free! 😉

    @Michael – my bad! I had linked the second URL to the original. Fixed now! :-)

    Not working for me. Do I need to be logged into my Google Accounts to get these results?

    Got it, missed the qdr:n first time around…. Sorry. Interesting that no results from Twitter.

    @Andy – Thankfully there are people like you out there tinkering with these things so the rest of us can waste time testing them out over and over and over again 😉

    Interestng point there Vlad, given the immediacy of Twitter. Maybe by the time of “discovery” the Tweet is out of “time”?
