    Basically, I noticed several competitors are using a strategy where Google shows their posts as being constantly updated/recently posted, and when I check out the websites the posts are altered to always display the current date. How are they doing this?

    I don't think so, some of these sites have 50+ posts each with the date all set to "today".

    I believe I read something like this on a thread a while back. Some kind of script that fools the google bot that the post has been updated. And they keep redoing it every six to 8 hours or something. Dont know if this is the same script. But that one was for some coupon site.
