Is there a way for us to add a "dateUpdated" meta tag to articles?

MBeard 4 years ago in BLOX CMS updated by Christine Masters (Director of BLOX CMS) 4 years ago 1

I see that there is a meta itemprop tag for "datePublished and "dateCreated", we would like the "dateUpdated" tag for purposes of articles being rescraped.

Hi there!


Actually, the dateModified schema.org property is already available. It looks like this in the code:


<meta itemprop="dateCreated" content="Tue, 28 Apr 2015 21:22:00 -0500">
<meta itemprop="datePublished" content="Tue, 28 Apr 2015 21:22:00 -0500"> <meta itemprop="dateModified" content="Mon, 10 Aug 2015 10:07:18 -0500">

If you are not seeing updates, look in your application settings for editorial. You may have "Manually declare important updates" turned on. In this case you have to check the box in the save button to denote something as officially updated. Then (after a few minutes) it will get the updated flag.


Note that stories more than 30 days old will not show an updated flag to avoid robots getting confused that a story is new when it was just updated. We may change this policy soon as it appears robots have fixed that issue, but we are testing this.
