Which news sites do and don’t get a ‘last updated’ time in Google

Some news sites get a last updated time stamp in Google – and some don’t. It’s a bit of information next to the URL that says XX minutes ago and shows when the most recent story was published.

Not all news sites get it – although I can’t see any rhyme or reason (originally posted here).

Sites that do have it

The sites that do have it are: Times, Telegraph, BBC News, Express, ITN, Guardian. (Click the picture for a bigger version).

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.
