Hi how can i get google to show last updated post date in the google search results. At the moment it is showing nothingSeptember 12, 2019 at 5:59 am #1007588DavidStaffCustomer Support
have you added and code or plugin that changes the display of the Post dates?
I looked at a few of your posts and none of them have the Modified Date markup, which should be there by default.
In regards to Google, whatever we help change, its still down to Googles Algorithms to decide whether to display it – but with the data above missing it won’t ever find it.September 16, 2019 at 6:53 pm #1011141Prajwal
HI David, NO i have not added any extra plugin. I am using one of the theme provided by Generatepress with minor modifications. I can definately see the post date but even they are not being displayed in the search results which was not the case before.September 17, 2019 at 2:06 am #1011327DavidStaffCustomer Support
Do you have any functions to do with the post date?
In the markup i can only see the Published date, but default the Theme outputs both published and updated date, although only one of them is displayed.September 17, 2019 at 2:09 am #1011331Prajwal
No i donot have any functions, do i need to check anything in the theme’s code or something to make sure it is in place?September 17, 2019 at 4:57 am #1011449DavidStaffCustomer SupportSeptember 17, 2019 at 4:59 am #1011451Prajwal
No i just added the free child theme provided by you guysSeptember 17, 2019 at 7:13 am #1011517DavidStaffCustomer Support
Aah right – i went back to some of your oldest posts and i can see the Update Date.
Add the filter function provided here:
This will display the updated date if it exists.
As i said before – we cannot control how Google uses this meta.September 21, 2019 at 8:00 am #1015285Prajwal
Thank you very much, another question is i installed the “code snippets” plugin and added the code. It changed the date to updated date, my final question is should i choose the Run code everywhere option or the “Run it once option” ??September 21, 2019 at 8:53 am #1015320
