    Hi,

    It is not possible to remove as we output the date by default. Yoast outputs a set of dates that Google may use to show a date in the SERPs. We output the datePublished and dateModified as schema. Google may use these as a signal to show a date in the SERPs. To remove that schema you will need to create custom code using our guide here https://developer.yoast.com/features/schema/api/#to-add-or-remove-graph-pieces to specifically target that schema and remove it.

    Unfortunately, there’s a difference between the support we can offer and the level of programming needed to change (core) features of our plugin. Since we don’t want to take the risk that we break your website by suggesting incorrect or incomplete code, we cannot advise you on how to make such changes. And even though we cannot be of any assistance, you’re completely free to change anything in the plugin to better suit your needs.

    We highly recommend checking out our list of Yoast Partners here https://yoast.com/yoast-partners/ in case you are in need of development.

    We will also keep this issue open for 1 week in case someone from the community can help. Perhaps a developer watching these forums can assist further. After which, we will close in order to keep the overview.

    NOTE: Even if you do remove that schema there is a chance Google is using some other signals on the page to show the date.

    I also want this information, because the posting date is displayed in the search results on the front page

    @jtecnic According to the forum guidelines, you’ll need to open a new topic instead of replying to an existing post. That way, it’s easier to track issues and provide assistance without alerting someone else for your problems and debugging, when they don’t need it.
