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 the 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 in 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 the 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 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.

How to Get Rid of Date from Blogspot Post Links

  1. Login to Blogger Account

You should copy the entire post content including tags (title, meta tags, etc..) to the new page.

  5. Perform a custom redirect from the old article URL to the newly created page. To do this follow the instructions provided in the link below.

Thanks Bro

That's just way too many steps to do such a simple thing and makes me want to go back to Wordpress but I have so much content on Blogger so is there still a way to move the whole blog to Wordpress where I have way more control over this as well as effective seo options for posts?
