The Date of Publication Is a Must

Have you ever searched the web to find an article where you couldn’t see at what date it was published? It happens to me quite often. I don’t understand why such an important piece of information isn’t communicated to the readers.

In a fast moving numeric world, the publishing date helps the reader to gauge the relevancy of the content. On all my websites, I do set the date of publication because it adds context to the content. When I created Numeric Citizen I/O, I chose to use a post slug format that includes the date of publication. The path to the webpage being shown in search results, this help searching the web a more useful experience. Down below are examples of URL to my websites.
