Google has released a new “show options” feature, codenamed as Toolbet. This feature allow users to restrict results to just pages from the past 24 hours. Users can use this feature along with Google’s “site” and “link” operators, too.
Here’s how:

  • Finding newly added pages: For instance, if your site is, then enter the into Google, and you’ll find all the pages indexed. Now, click on the “Show options…” button available on top of the search result. On the left hand bar you'll notice “Past 24 hours” link click on it. It also have the option to “Sort by date.”
  • Finding new links to your pages: It also follows the same procedure as mentioned above, just use instead. You'll find all the websites, which link to your site. This step will enable you to uncover all the discussion happening around your site.

The link: command is treated as a text based search, not a special operator, when combined with the date based parameters. It has always been like this.

In many cases mentions of a domain name, especially those that are not keyword based, will also happen to have links to that domain, but that doesn’t make it a link: search, just a mention.
