CAOS now supports Google Analytics 4: Here’s all you Need to Know

2020 was a big year for Google. Halfway they published a major upgrade for PageSpeed Insights and near the end of the year the Search Giant released v4 of its Analytics API, introducing a bunch of new features.

How to add Date Last Updated to WordPress Posts

Most themes show the Published Date above each post. What most themes don’t show (for some reason) is the Last Updated (or Last Modified) Date/Time. This sucks, because no one (including Google) will be able to fully appreciate the work you put into your blog!

Luckily WordPress already saves this information for each post and it is pretty easy to integrate into your theme using a plugin. Today I’ll show you how.
