The Date of Publication Is a Must

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.
