Remove Date Number (Year & Month Figure) From Blogger Post URL

Most of the bloggers do not care the date information on the blogspot post URL because they treat blog as a web diary. They write about things or facts which are valid only at the time of writing. For example political blogs, news blogs etc are valid only at a specific point of time and the time figure on the published URL makes sense. However, if you are a professional blogger who writes facts or tutorials which are valid for all the time, date figures on the post links make no sense. If you are using WordPress, you can choose the custom URL structure to avoid Year/Month from link but in Blogspot you do not have such freedom. Though blogger does not provide a way to remove the date from the blog post URL, you can choose an indirect method to avoid them from your popular articles without affecting the current traffic and backlink value. In this method you must to create a new page (not post) where there is no digit on the URL and paste the content of your old popular post. Then using custom redirect feature of blogspot, you can redirect the old post URL to the new URL which does not have date figure. If you are looking for a straight method to get rid of digits from blogger published links, currently it doesn't have such a feature.
