News sites that get a time stamp in Google – and those that don’t

April 28, 2009 5 Comments

Some news sites get a last updated time stamp in Google - and some don't.


The time stamp

It's a bit of information next to the URL that says XX minutes ago.

Not all news sites get it - although I can't see any rhyme or reason.

Sites that do have it

The sites that do have it are: Times, Telegraph, BBC News, Express, ITN, Guardian.

These sites all have a time stamp

The Express could probably live without it, as I recently showed that they don't update their site after 8am on a Sunday.

Sites that don't have it

The sites that don't seem to have it are: FT, Sun, Mirror, Manchester Evening News, Dail Mail, Metro and Independent.
