Post Info: How to remove date from WordPress post
Post info is important for blogs where content gets updated frequently. But there are some blogs where content frequency is little low and posts don’t go live every day or on regular intervals. If the blog URL’s are ranking in SERP for targeted keywords, then it won’t look nice that the post is appearing with date. For example my blog is getting rank on “How to Write SEO Friendly Content”. You can see the complete post info along with date when I published that article. I have enabled dates because I want it to be there.
It’s because my content frequency is decent and I write SEO answers regularly as I got a lot of questions on quora. I try my level best to solve them and if I find any problem useful and very common which needs to be solved for everyone then I pick up those problems and provide solution on my blog.

Solutions 1 to Remove date from wordpress post
Use a table or layout as a home page instead of using a static page. Do not use a “Page” as your homepage.

For example, I am using a template with bunch of pages and call to actions as a layout on my blog TheSEOGuy. That’s why if you search for my blog, only the posts would show date but the homepage would not show any date in SERP.
