I'm trying to understand the logic Google search uses when I use the time frame filter.

In the first search, I restrict results to "Past 24 hours":

searching in the past day

In the second search, I restrict to "Past week" :

searching in the past week

As you can see, I get one result for "Past 24 hours" but no results for "Past week".

Could someone explain what's going on here?

  • I was able to reproduce your results. // I tried searching within youtube with the one day filter and the one week filter, and there, the results were what they should be, i.e., the item showed up in both. – aparente001 Dec 8 '17 at 13:55
  • I can't reproduce this either. What google domain are you using (google.com, google.co.uk, google.ca,...)? – Rubén Dec 8 '17 at 18:55
  • @Rubén .com domain. – zaf Dec 9 '17 at 14:10
  • @aparente001 thanks for confirming. This is something that changes day to day so at least somebody believes me. – zaf Dec 9 '17 at 14:12
