Is there a way to find when a particular page was indexed by Google?

    The title kinda says it all..

    Anyway, imagine I have a page xxx.com/test that I posted some time ago.
    I would like to know when was the first time Google indexed this specific page.

    Is that possible?

    Thanks

    I only see this way to check when specific page is indexed:

    Search Google for something that brings up the page you want as a result, with quotation marks. THen use search tools, select custom range... from the any time drop down. Put in a large date range such as 01/01/1900 to 01/01/2020

    Then, Google will show the date that it discovered the content that is on the specific page in the search result.

    You can use the Google "Site" command to check if the URL is indexed or not. Search for Google commands and operators to find more info

    Thanks, but the question was WHEN, not IF.
    speed12 already provided me with an answer..
