Do you think clients recognise brands in the SEO industry? Is this something they use as a reference when hiring an agency? Do you wonder how other SEO agencies work on their brands (and if so, how)? I recently began…Read more ›

Let's face it: We're all pressed for time, and measuring, analyzing, and reporting the success of content marketing is time-consuming work. Here's how you can distill the performance of your content into a single metric: one metric to rule them all.

Everyone knows that browsers don’t always report where visitors came from when they arrive at a website. When they don’t report where they were in the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) referrer header, often the traffic is considered “Direct” — which really means, “we have no clue where they came from, maybe they typed the URL […]

+Enrico Altavilla discovers a new temporal function in Google. Let's see the lotto results for tomorrow: https://www.google.com.au/search?q=lotto+results&tbs=qdr:r
 
Hacking the hell out of Google search options

I warn you: this is some serious crazy voodoo search shit. I've found it playing with the SERP URL and I want to share it with you.

I can't exclude that Google will fix things to prevent users from using these hacks. :-P


1 - The standard, well-known stuff

Go to Google.com (on desktop) and search for a very generic query, like [site:com], which will return results that are hosted under a .com domain.

Now click on the link "Search tools" and an option should appear: "Any time". Click on it and you'll see the full list of values that you can select:
- Past hour
- Past 24 hours
- Past week
- Past month
- Past year
- Custom range

Click on "Past hour" and Google will show you only results that have been (re)indexed in the past hour.

Click on the new appeared link "Sorted by relevance" and select "Sorted by date". In this way the results will be listed from the most "fresh" one to the oldest one and each of them should show something like "X mins ago" near the snippet.

Practical tip: instead of a generic [site:com] query you can of course search for queries more useful to you. For example, try [site:yourdomain.com] to see which documents of your website have been indexed by Google in the last hour.


2 - The voodoo stuff

If you have selected the "Past hour" option, in the URL of the search page you should see the text "qdr:h" (you could need to scroll the URL a bit to find that text).

That "h" means "hour". Let's see what happens when we manually change that letter...

Substitute that "h" with an "s" and hit "Enter". Watch how the name of the option "Past hour" has changed, it should now be "Past second"!

This new query shouldn't return any result because Google doesn't actually provide any way to restrict the results to those indexed in the last second. Still, it's pretty crazy that you can activate unimplemented or undocumented options just changing a character in the URL!

Let's try a different character. Change it with an "e" and the option should now change to "This weekend"! The results should be restricted to those that Google has (re)indexed in the last two days. But I'm not 100% sure about this, so feel free to have a look at the results to confirm or deny my impression.

Change that character again and put there an "o" . The time option will change to "Today" and the results should be very similar (but not identical) to those that appear using the official option "Past 24 hours".

Change again that character to "n" and you'll get a very practical and undocumented "Past minute" option! I've found this query quite useful to monitor news websites, to spot new articles as soon as Google indexes them.

And now, the final and mindboggling one! Change that character to "r" and see for yourself what temporal option Google will show to you!  :-D

Wasn't it fun? Enjoy the hacks!   :-)

Communication, communication, communication!
Being on the same page is the key to a happy client-provider relationship. The two-way education process starts at an enquiry level and is nurtured throughout the entire life-cycle of a digital campaign. Today we'd like to reflect on, and appreciate the brilliant work that +Hannah Powter has done so far by keeping our clients informed, educated and happy.

This place is quite expensive but justified by the quality of food and service. They have a great range of Japanese spirits.

We were part of the Click! Digital Expo at the Brisbane City Hall in 2014 and found the venue to be excellent. Hope the organisers use it next year too.

Four of our staff stayed at RAMADA during SMX Munich and found it to be quite convenient due to its proximity to the conference centre. There are two restaurants to choose from at the premises. Overall the hotel is great only minor issues with credit card processing and internet speed in the hotel. Staff were always eager to accommodate our needs.
