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
To get rid of date figure from Old Popular blogger post URL, follow the steps below.
  1. Login to Blogger Account

  2. Click Dashboard

  3. Click on Pages and create a new page by Selecting a blank page

  4. Copy the entire content on the old popular page (the post which you do not want to show the data figure on URL) including all the meta tags and paste them on the newly created blogger page and publish it. You should make sure the entire post content including tags (title, meta tags etc) are copied 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.
