Preventing the Modified Date for Content from Changing

Did you know that in All in One SEO you can control whether the modified date for your content is changed?

This is useful if you want to make minor changes to your content but you don’t want to notify search engines when you save your changes.

Simply, check this box before your click the Update button and the modified date won’t be changed.
