This test checks to see how recently a website has been updated.

Why do we test for this?

Updating a website regularly can make search engines like Google spider more often, so it will be faster at indexing your changes. Also, visitors perceive up-to-date websites as more credible and are likely to dismiss websites as irrelevant if the content was written a long time ago.

How do we test for this?

We look at dates from the last modified header of your pages and assets (like images and css files) as well as dates contained within your pages. Given this information, we make a statistical analysis on the probable last updated date.

What can I do about it?

Update your website regularly with relevant news and information.
