PB Pages have no date metadata for sitemap.xml file

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hello, our sitemap.xml file (which as you likely know, needs to be accepted by Google, Bing and other search engines) has no "last modified date" property for any page we've built with Page Builder:
sitemap.png
Any native Joomla article does have that value. Since search engines look to the last modified date when crawling your website, PB should have that metadata available as well.

Is there a way to ensure pages from PB (which must have a last modified data somewhere) can expose that metadata so it can be included in the sitemap?

Thanks.

Indeed, pages do not have a date, never had.
We can add it in future updates, but I am not sure if this may help SEO.
Have you talked with SEO Expert?


Shop and Gallery components also do not have last modified data and can be in the top 10.
Also, Mine two sites built using SPPB only are in the top 10.

For sure it may help the administrator to check when somebody edited page last time.
That's why I added to wish-list.

Well yes...according to one of Google's own experts that data is important.

Yes and until further notice, I assume it's valid...only two years old. Anyway, feature request for Page Builder accepted.

BTW
you can add "Last modification date" manually inside xml file, if you have few pages, it should take you 60sec.
Of course, if your sitemap was created as a separate file, not from the component.
Easy task, may help by now.
