Surfing the web is a wonderful thing  because it lets you get whatever you want in no time and with no cost, at least nowadays. There are so many websites and webpages that most of us, in order to spot what we are looking for, have to use a web search engine. Useless to say, if you want to have a great Internet experience, Google search engine is a must for every Internet surfer . The down-side of this story is that, even though you use Google, most of the times it will still be difficult to get what you are looking for, above all if what your searching has to do with fresh content or content posted during a certain lapse of time. Let’s see how you can overcome this issue using Google Search commands to append at the end of a query.

Let’s say that you are searching for articles and content posted on a particular day. The first thing to do is go to Google Advanced Settings and tweak its filters in order to fine tune your research. If the options offered are too little for your tastes, try  the following commands to append at the end of your search queries:

  • &as_qdr=d This command will search whatever keyword you specify filtering the results by day. Basically, you will search everything posted in the last x days. As a matter of fact, you can add a number at the end of this command to further refine your search.  Example: www.google.com/ #hl=en&q=obama&btnG=Google+ Search&aq=f&oq=obama&fp= _rpp-4zAm3I&as_qdr=d4 . As you see I am searching everything having to do with the keyword Obama which was posted during the last 4 days.

As stated, the last word in the Google search command above means day. You can change it with the following words in order to refine your search on the base of specific lapses of time:

  • &as_qdr=w5 With this command you will search everything having a keyword of your choice posted during the last 4 weeks.
  • &as_qdr=m2 With this command you will search everything having a keyword of your choice posted during the last 2 months.
  • &as_qdr=y6 With this command  you will search everything having a keyword of your choice posted during the last 6 years.
