Using Plugin to take advantage of Google’s Freshness Factor

        I’m spending a lot of time majorly overhauling and updating old blog posts and want these to be treated as fresh content by google/search engines.

        I came across this article:

        which mentions (and recommends) the Last Modified Info Plugin.

        Does anyone have experience of this (or anything similar)?

        I appreciate the potential limitations of using such an approach but want to give it a try – provided there’s no real downside to doing so.

        Can anyone share any exprience or advice on ‘boosting’ updated posts, especially with this or similar plugins?

          I use that plug-in, too. It works fine.

            Thanks david – that’s good to hear!

            BTW, missing the ‘thumbs up’ and more social options in this new forum. But major credit on a HUGE overhaul of the Lab – looks terrific!

            BTW #2 – I’m finding these boxes a little tricky to use, they don’t fully open so you cannot always see the last line of the text that you’re typing and when I just came back into edit this comment the second line above was almost completely obscured. Hopefully a temporary setup hitch.

            BTW #3 (!) – Curious which forum software you went with in the end??
