When we order the questions by votes, we see questions from all past years and days.
There are a way to see the questions of today ( or of a given day or period?) ordered by votes?
If you include created:2018-04-05 in your search query, you see the posts which were created today. You can restrict it to questions using created:2018-04-05 is:q. (Naturally, if you try the same thing tomorrow, you'll have to change the date to see new questions.) There is a shortcut created:1d which only returns posts created yesterday - I do not know whether there is something similar for the posts created today.
And, of course you can use any other date (or date range), for example created:2018-01-01..2018-01-01 is:q returns questions from January 1 2018. You can also further refine the search query, for example, you can only search for questions in a specific tag.
Of course, as with any search, you have several possibilities how to order search results. One of them is by score. So you can see the top-voted:
