What does "date accessed" mean in a bibliography?

I have to write a Works Cited page to go with my essay, but I cannot figure out what this means. Is it the date that I found a website or the last time I looked at the website? Please help.

Here's an interesting situation:
 
Another tutor answered a question last night and made a typo in his answer.  I saw the post and pointed out the error so the student would not get the wrong information.  While I was writing my post, the other tutor reread his Answer and corrected it (he can edit his post), but I can't edit or delete my comment.  Now, readers wonder what I was complaining about because they don't know the time at which I read the post.
 
On the World Wide Web, information on web pages changes very frequently.  It is probably not "if the information were to change," so Matt H. makes a very important point.  The information may not be available in any other place than on that web site (such as in a certain edition of a book), but citing references is so much better than plagiarism.
