I need to make this adjustment in the core plugin, but we can try this for now:

add_filter( 'wpsp_date_output', 'tu_wpsp_updated_date_first' );
function tu_wpsp_updated_date_first() {
	$time_string = '';
	if ( get_the_time( 'U' ) !== get_the_modified_time( 'U' ) ) {
		$time_string .= '<time class="wp-show-posts-updated" datetime="%3$s" itemprop="dateModified">%4$s</time>';
	$time_string .= '<time class="wp-show-posts-entry-date published" datetime="%1$s" itemprop="datePublished">%2$s</time>';
	$time_string = sprintf( $time_string,
		esc_attr( get_the_date( 'c' ) ),
		esc_html( get_the_date() ),
		esc_attr( get_the_modified_date( 'c' ) ),
		esc_html( get_the_modified_date() )
	// If our date is enabled, show it
	$output = sprintf(
		'<span class="wp-show-posts-posted-on wp-show-posts-meta">
			<a href="%1$s" title="%2$s" rel="bookmark">%3$s</a>
		esc_url( get_permalink() ),
		esc_attr( get_the_time() ),

	return $output;

Then add this CSS:

.wp-show-posts-updated {
    display: inline-block;

.wp-show-posts-updated + .wp-show-posts-entry-date {
    display: none;

Let me know if that works or not 🙂
