Real-Time Google Search Hack–With Free Açaí Berries!



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:

http://www.google.com/search?q=iphone&hl=en&safe=off&tbo=1&tbs=qdr:d

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!

http://www.google.com/search?q=iphone&hl=en&safe=off&tbo=1&tbs=qdr:n

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! ;-)

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

    Andy,

    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”?
