    older last update date in the sitemap

    Hi,

    I have an onsite blog at http://www.criminaldefenseduilawyer.com/blog/ . This is a wordpress site where a static page is displayed on the homepage and the posts are going to a static page called 'blog'. The configurations are done within wordpress's configuration guidelines shown in this article: http://www.prelovac.com/vladimir/twe...me-page-tweaks

    The problem I am experiencing is that the 'blog' page is a static page and its last update date is an old date, the one when the page was last edited. However, I have posts coming to that page almost every day. So in reality it is being updated much more frequently. Please see the sitemap where for the last modified date: http://www.criminaldefenseduilawyer.com/sitemap.xml

    I suspect that this confuses search engines and and they also see the blog page http://www.criminaldefenseduilawyer.com/blog/ last updated much earlier than the real date. This results in the fact that the category and tag pages are more popular than the blog page, while these are getting rarely updated compared with the http://www.criminaldefenseduilawyer.com/blog/ page.

    My question is how can I use wordpress's functionality of displaying posts on a static page instead of the homepage and having a correct last modified date for that static page, so that the search engines also know that this page is being updated almost every day.

    thanks James, i decided to give it a try. do you think that search engines will be able to capture this code and see the real date of the page updated?
