    How can I eliminate the date of the posts from SERP?

    Hi,

    You can try following these articles:
    Using Yoast.

    If you must go the “remove date from theme” route, you can follow Tom’s replies here:

    Thanks

    Does the “remove date from theme” option only remove the dates from the posts or also it removes dates from SERP? I am mainly looking for removing dates from SERP

    Tom’s answer is the guaranteed way to removing dates from SERP as it completely removes the dates from the DOM structure, meaning Google’s crawler bots have no date to parse when it indexes your site.

    But in exchange, yes it won’t be visible for the visitors too.

    The problem with the other suggested method are that they’re not guaranteed to work because Google’s crawlers bot may still find dates within the page’s DOM structure.

    I see that you’re using Yoast. If you read their article on my previous reply, they also mentioned and acknowledged that its something we can easily control on our end.

    OK, so if I understood correctly. If I apply Tom’s method, I need to wait for google to crawl again the posts to see the effects, meaning NOT showing the publication date in SERP, correct?

    You can wait for the recrawl or you can ask Google to recrawl your site again.
