Run Google searches by date via a bookmarklet Web Browsers
I haven't noticed it before, but you can add an as_qdr parameter to the end of a URL in Google to get a drop-down menu (next to the search box) that lets you search by date. For example:

http://www.google.com/search?&q=macosxhints&as_qdr=d

So I wrote this bookmarklet that does that automatically:
javascript:window.open(document.URL + "&as_qdr=d")
You can customize it as you please:
  • d[number]: past number of days (e.g.: d10)
  • w[number]: past number of weeks
  • y[number]: past number of years
More info on this can be found in this post on the Google Operating System site.

A bookmarklet that replaces the current window with the desired response (in this case, for the past month) is:
javascript:location.href%20=%20(document.URL%20+%20"&as_qdr=d30");%20void%200

I should comment that both these bookmarklets are intended for use after you have navigated to a Google search results page. And yes, the code goes in the URL/Location field of a bookmark.
