Since genealogy is "old data", I don't see a problem with "out of date"
sites. As another example, I put newspaper items on my sites. Once a page
is full with the image plus transcription, it's full -- so it won't be
Personally, I don't like the "last update" statements. As a piece of
trivia, "last updated" returns 127,000,000 results. Even minus java scripts
et al, that's a ton of "last updated" statements on the 'Net.
On a related note, one META TAG on content can specify that the page(s)
"never" expires for Google bots. Many WYSIWYG programs stick in a date
there. Worth looking at to see if your site has the tag and what it
specifies (a date? never?)
