    So I was doing some keyword research for some Clickbank products and I came across a popular product with the word "review" after the product title. What's interesting though is that when I searched for the keyword in Google, the second position has a date next to it, but the date is March 28, 2013, ie. the future.

    So what's up with this? Is it a new trick to manipulate SERPs or what? Has anyone heard of this before?

    All the website owner did was change his post date. Anyone can do this on wordpress.

    Interesting to say the least. 'Fresh' content ranks good ;)

    I was thinking about that, but why would Google allow that to be indexed with a date from the future? Is this a loophole or what?
