I wonder if the "date" that google is aware of is when their robot  
last found the page, not when it was created?

Plus there are all sorts of tricks some outfits use to try and get  
their page to show up closer to the top of a google search then it  
has a right to, including text the same color as the background and 1  
point fonts. I wouldn't expect this sort of thing with the type of  
thing you're talking about but you never know, especially if the page  
has any advertising on it that pays by the "view".

If a page shows up where you don't expect it you might view the html  
source to see if somebody's being "tricky".
