I was doing a search in Google about Visual Studio custom tools, and the second result pointed to a question in Stack Overflow.

Google states that the article date is 21 May 2010, but when viewing the question, the date is May 21 '09 and nowhere on the page is an indication that the question was updated in 2010.

Is this a SO problem or a Google indexing misunderstanding? I don't know, but I though I'd share.

Interesting. I have no idea where Google is getting that date; my guess is they are inferring it (incorrectly) from the page somehow.

I'm pretty sure no part of that page contains the date 21-May-2010 anywhere..

And since this is not our "bug", I am retagging this discussion.
