    Do I need 'update' information in html?
    At present I depend on the 'file created data stamp' to tell the Googlebots which are the new landing pages and which are the existing landing pages. Should I add aditional information to make the bot's job easier for the price of considerable complexity in my programming. Some alternatives I have considered are:

    Adding 'update date' to the individual XML records in my sitemaps

    Adding an 'update date' to the META Info in the landing page HTML

    Adding an 'Updated ON ..." to be displayed within the HTML

    or ...

    Thoughts????

    I think you're overdoing it already. "New" means new to Google's database
    and they don't need us to tell them that. I used to do the same thing with
    my blackhatbootcamp site, until I woke up.

    I think do 301 redirect, Google will know your new landing page when it crawl.

    hmmm
    i think why bother getting your landing page indexed in the first place? surely its dup by its very nature. Just noindex it and be done with it, use it for pure promotion/conversion as it was meant for.
