Google Tests Search By Time, Week, Month & Year

Google is testing the ability to search its web search by time, such as posts in the last 24 hours, week, month and incremental months and years.

Freshness is becoming more of an important trait in ranking and more and more sites are adding blogs, news rooms and articles to keep up with the demand. With Google consolidating its blog, news and other search channels into one Universal search, the demand to search by day or time becomes more important.
