Time-based sitelinks

 6:05 am on Oct 17, 2012 (gmt 0)

Not sure if this is new, but when querying under a specific timeframe (Past 24 hours, week, etc) Google will show sitelinks from within that timeframe on the first result.

As far as I can tell, this doesn't happen on general queries, you need to search for the site name itself.

Dying to see if WebmasterWorld can allow an example query here...

I came across them when searching for my site.

But I don't want to self promote, so... try searching for Microsoft under last week. Sitelinks from the recent Xbox Music announcement show up.

That's a very acceptable example - thanks, setzer. And it's an interesting feature for Google Search too. I never expected it but it certainly makes sense for the user.

Thank you!

Oh, I see, now you have to click a search tools button to see the tools. That's 5 minutes I'll never get back.

Yeah, last week an Xbox sitelink, today Surface. But not too consistent, the past year setting also brings up the new Surface sitelink.
