So today I discovered that the pages from my website are listed with an unexpected date value. I specify the schema.org properties
dateModified for most of my content pages. I'd expect that search results show me when a page was last updated, to get a sense of the currency of the page. But it's showing the date of first publishing which may be years ago. That's a bit unsatisfying but I don't want to misuse the metadata because Google probably reads it wrong.
Some search terms for you to try it out: "gitrevisiontool"; "easyxml"; "multiselecttreeview" (look for the results on dev.unclassified.de; the human- and machine-readable dates come at the end of the page)
Does anybody know more about what's wrong here? Or does it work as designed? (What a stupid design that would be.)
