Hide My Dates


The plugin uses a CSS hack to show the date – your visitors see it, but Google takes it for the “title” parameter of a “span” element and does not consider it to be a part of the page content. Therefore, the publishing date is not shown in the search snippet.

The plugin requires that the date in your theme be rendered directly though WordPress date functions.
