Testing Index Date Issues - Overriding File Modification Date
with the HTTP Equiv Tag

This page is in a suite of pages testing how search indexers do with page modification dates. If the server or the file system has the wrong modification dates, adding HTTP Equiv tags can identify the meaningful content date.

<meta http-equiv="Last-Modified" content="01 May 2005 01:00:00 GMT">

Not all search engines will honor these tags, but they ought to!

Actual Modification Date: March 8, 2011

Search Code: RTest, RTest263, RTestGood, RTestGood263

For more tests, see the Date Test Suite and the List of Search Indexing and Robot Tests.
