Does Google like old versions of the Postgres docs?

Christian Mair
Hi,

is it just me, or does Google like old versions of the Postgres
docs?

I seem to get a first hit pointing to 9.1 very often. Just now I googled

   postgres earthdistance

and got a pointer to the 8.3 (!) version, even.

Any thoughts about why that's happening?

Bye,
Chris.

This has been discussed, several times that I can recall, on pgsql-www.
IIRC, our web team is doing something about this, but it's slow to take
effect on Google's listings.

My recollection is more along the lines of- we've tried a bunch of stuff
and nothing seems to work.

Thanks!

Has anyone asked the Django docs team how they do it?

The docs layout is similar:

postgres earthdistance
https://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.3/static/earthdistance.html

django group by
https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.10/topics/db/aggregation/

Where 1.10 is the latest production version.
