Google Time Stamping Sites to the minute

Google now posting site information by the minute

Thanks to search engine land (always a great resource for all manner of ‘search’ related topics) for pointing out that Google is now time stamping sites when last visited by minutes rather than the traditional day. Backing up a previous article on our Blog on how often Google is indexing sites.

So usually you get information as seen below, in this case showing the BBC site stamped as 2 August.


However, in a newish development Google is now showing the last time, in minutes, that they visited the site. Interestingly the cached versions often show both date and time.


This new ‘minute’ version is only on some datacenters at the moment but expect this to be rolled out at some stage soon.
